“Choose it and Use it” is a video reminding us of how the past is linked to what we do today and its impact on the future.
If there’s anything I like, it’s that someone with a stake in American history is writing about how it affected her. Now, that’s dedication and a hint that passion and interest makes a lot of difference. It’s because of people like Marguerite Kearns that the 2020 suffrage centennial is as widely observed as it is. She didn’t do it single handed. Lots of others were busy behind the scenes, doing their thing, bringing it to our attention. And now, it’s our turn.
I have been a reader on this site for a while now, and I am thankful for all the work put into this. History needs to be kept intact and told. The good, the bad, and the ugly. It is how we learn to grow and make the right choices without repeating history. Keep up the great work!
OMG. I couldn’t have predicted that the 2020 suffrage centennial would have been impacted so hard. Am glad to hear that the observance is being extended into 2021. I’d love to hear more about them suffragettes. And how your memoir, Marguerite, is told through the stories of your grandfather and mother. It’s a welcome addition to have storytelling to add to what’s coming out now.
I support what you are doing in 2020 when bringing history alive.
Thank you for all your contributions, Marguerite. They certainly do not go unnoticed. Your writing and storytelling abilities are important for sharing the plight of women on a path to greater equality throughout history. So much went into securing the right to vote, but people rarely appreciate it without someone prepared to offer all the right insights.
Important contribution to the discussion about voting rights!
Have a blast doing your thing with the suffrage wagon. I get the updates in my email box.
I enjoy reading the material Suffrage Wagon News Channel and the e-mails – it continues to inform and shape our efforts to bring recognition of the Centennial in my home state of Minnesota.
One idea that should warrant additonal attention is theCentennial of Women’s Suffrage in New York, Girl Scout Patch Program which is outstanding.
The New York Girl Scouts are celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York with a special award bearing the face of Susan B. Anthony. The New York State Women’s Suffrage Commission and Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York have joined forces to create a new patch celebrating the history of the women’s suffrage movement and the struggle to get the right to vote in November 6, 1917, three years before the 19th Constitutional Amendment. This award in noteworthy not only for inspiring our young women to remember what it took to achieve suffrage, but also to understand the importance of voting.
My hope is that through the Suffrage Wagon News, other volunteers will look at their own State history and consider a similar effort tailored to the suffragist movement in their State.
