About Us

"The 19th Amendment: Expanding the Arc of the Suffrage Story" is a coordinated effort of individuals and organizations in the Gallatin Valley, Montana who are working to change the narrative of women's suffrage.  We recognize that the fight for women's voting rights, culminating with the 19th Amendment, was a key achievement for white women's rights, but we also recognize that many indigenous women and women of color were excluded from both the process and the outcomes of the fights for suffrage.  We are committed to using this anniversary as an opportunity to include these voices and their stories of suffrage, or lack thereof, and to highlight the continued threats to women's rights today.

The 19th Amendment Only Really Helped White Women

August 16, 2019

From Teen Vogue:  "While women of color were forced to wait nearly 50 extra years after the passage of the 19th Amendment to gain proper access to the ballot box, their contributions to the protests and demonstrations were critical to the amendment's passage.  White women earned the right to vote, in part, due to women of color, and these contributions have since been largely erased from history."
