March is Women’s History Month, and this year’s celebration carries special significance as we recognize the upcoming centennial of the 19th Amendment’s passage into law. As many head to the polls today for Super Tuesday, we recognize the continued importance of voting rights for all.
In August 1920, women first won the right to vote. Yet, despite the 19th Amendment’s passage, millions of women of color and women living in poverty remained disenfranchised through targeted, restrictive measures like poll taxes and literacy tests. The fight for equal access to voting continues today, as voting rights advocates work to ensure that states’ voting laws do no prohibit or dissuade eligible voters from exercising their right to participate in our democracy.
This Take Action Tuesday, celebrate Women’s History Month by ensuring that voting is accessible to all.
