What actions will you take to shape our democracy? On the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, find your inspiration in these stories of Minnesota women.

The making of a movement

The work of attaining voting rights for women spanned generations. In Minnesota, the movement began when a few women inserted themselves into public debates. It picked up momentum as women formed coalitions to amplify their voices. Once the amendment passed, women doubled down on their work — training new voters and fighting for the many people still denied voting rights. That work continues.
