WASHINGTON – The U.S. Senate on Thursday, July 2, named a bipartisan proposal introduced by Senators Tammy Baldwin (DWI) and Susan Collins (R-ME) with all female senators to designate August as National Women’s Vogue Month.
In 2020, American women were given the right to vote on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment.
“This year marks the centenary of America and the progress that women have made over the last 100 years. Let us also acknowledge that we need to break more glass ceilings and do more to ensure that the right to vote is won for all, protected.” “Sen Baldwin says.
The Nineteenth Amendment was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and on August 16, 1950, the Legislature of the Thirteenth State approved the move, and it became part of the Constitution on August 26, 1920.
The resolution reads in part:
“The resolution is that the Senate designates August 2020 as ‘National Women’s Suffering Month;’ As promised in the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. recognizes the role of the 19th Amendment in furthering the core values of democracy. It reaffirms the desire to inspire future generations to nurture and preserve the historic precedent established under the 19th Amendment. “
