For the month of August, the Maine Irish Heritage Center will be joining the Smithsonian, US National Archives, the Library of Congress and museums and libraries across the country to examine the fight for Suffrage. Many Irish American women played a role in the Suffrage Movement and we hope to dive deeper into their stories as we near the Centennial of the 19th Amendment on August 26th, 2020.

Check out the #19SuffrageStories hashtag to learn about the multitude of women from diverse backgrounds who fought for Suffrage before and after the passing of the 19th Amendment. Head to the Smithsonian, US National Archives, or the Library of Congress website’s to learn more about the #19SuffrageStories program!
