The Fight for Equality Continues – 100 Years Later
Brave women like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and many others were tireless advocates working and speaking out against the injustice of denying voting rights to women. On August 18, 1920, as a result of the suffragette’s sacrifice, passion and commitment, the 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote!
In 2020, America is facing another battle regarding a great social injustice: abortion violence and the tragic impact it has on our nation. Just as our sisters would not be silent 100 years ago, so we will not be silent on the issue of abortion today!
Stanton Public Policy Center is inviting women and all people of good will from across the nation to join us for an historic public witness of justice and human rights in Washington, D.C., 100 years after courageous suffragettes secured a woman’s right to vote. For more information about the first Purple Sash Revolution event, visit the official Facebook event page.
The mother of seven children, Elizabeth Cady Stanton said this about infanticide: “There must be a remedy for such a crying evil as this. But where shall it be found, at least begin, if not in the complete enfranchisement and elevation of women?”
We unite with our sister Susan B. Anthony as she stood against the violence of abortion and declared, “I deplore the horrible crime of child-murder… No matter what the motive.”
