Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has cosponsored a House resolution acknowledging the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and the centennial of the amendment becoming part of the United States Constitution. The bipartisan resolution recognizes these historic anniversaries by designating August as National Women’s Suffrage Month.
“The Women’s Suffrage Movement has deep ties to the North Country and upstate New York,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “I am proud to represent a district that is home of the birthplace of Elizabeth Cady Stanton in Johnstown and Susan B. Anthony’s home in Greenwich. These women were essential voices of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, and I am proud to honor their legacy in a number of ways, including this resolution. I continue to advocate for programs and funding to help educate future generations about the importance of the Women’s Movement and the ratification of the 19th Amendment, as they are pivotal moments in our nation’s history.”
