Year of the Woman

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. American women were granted the right to vote with the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified on August 18, 1920, after a 72-year fight by suffragists. As part of a national campaign to commemorate this historic event, Tryon Palace joins North Carolina’s Department of Natural and Cultural Resources to kick off a campaign titled “She Changed the World: NC Women Breaking Barriers.”

From July 2019 to June 2020, Tryon Palace will highlight programming with a focus on the achievements, struggles, and history of women. This campaign focuses on North Carolina women past and present who have achieved amazing things in multiple disciplines to help make the world a better place.
