  Some women spent their entire lives dedicated to adding the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucretia Mott were essential in the beginning movement.  Their passion helped form the National Woman Suffrage Association and organize the first women’s right convention, known as the “Seneca Falls Convention,” in NY.  They paved the way for the next generation of strong-minded women to continue their legacy.

Carrie Chapman Catt, Alice Paul, and Lucy Burns took the reins around 1910.  Paul and Burns organized political protests and started picketing the White House in 1917.  Even though they received the support of President Wilson a year later, the picketing continued until the House of Representatives passed the amendment in 1919.

The 19th amendment was ratified as part of the US Constitution on August 26, 1920.  In illustrating the event’s new centennial stamp, the artist drew inspiration from vintage images of suffragettes.  She created a stylized design of early 20th century marchers, using a color scheme of purple, white, and gold.  Those are the colors of the National Women’s Party, instrumental during the later years of the movement in the fight for women’s suffrage.  (By the way, the “NWP” is still going strong!)
