"Hard Won, Not Done," a year of events scheduled across the state of Iowa to celebrate 100 years of women's suffrage. Join us for a half-day commemoration of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which will celebrate the diverse voices of the women's suffrage movement in Iowa and note other important landmarks in the American journey to universal adult suffrage. Although the vote was hard won, the work is not yet done.
