Women's Suffrage: Home

Welcome!

Augustana University is celebrating the centennial of women’s right to vote. This page has websites, videos, and articles about the women's suffrage movement. It also has resources for voting and a link to read our founding document, the Constitution of the United States. There is so much to learn about this movement and it is humbling to look back and see how far we have come.  We are not a perfect union so we are always striving to become better.  Let's celebrate the women who have made great strides by reading the Constitution and by voting in November. It is the least we can do to honor these women who fought for over 70 years for the right to vote.
