1:pm - 4:pm
Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, NY. Women's Equality Day. By the summer of 1920 most states had ratified the 19th amendment with politicians in eight states, mainly in the conservative south voting against it. Then the mother of a young Tennessee lawmaker, Harry Burn, who previously had backed the anti-suffragist bloc, carefully weighed a letter from his mother. Dear Son, Hurry and vote for Suffrage and don't keep them in doubt... I have been waiting to see how you stood but have not seen anything yet... Don't forget to be a good boy and help Mrs. Catt with her "Rats." Is she the one that put rat in ratification? Ha! No more from mama this time. With lots of love, Mama. Mamma won out and Tennessee Senators voted to approve the amendment and deliver the crucial 36th state vote necessary for final adoption of the 19th amendment.
