THE NETWORK OF ENLIGHTENED WOMEN CELEBRATES THE RATIFICATION OF THE 19th AMENDMENT WITH #WHYWOMENVOTE CAMPAIGN
WASHINGTON, DC—On Friday, August 18, the Network of enlightened Women, known as NeW, will commemorate the anniversary of the ratification of the 19thAmendment, which granted women the right to vote, by sharing images, quotes, and facts about the women’s suffrage movement on social media platforms with the hashtag #WhyWomenVote.
“Unlike many women around the world, American women have a voice in politics and policy,” said Karin Agness Lips, President and Founder of NeW. “We are celebrating all that women have achieved on this historic day since the ratification of the 19thAmendment in 1920. Thank you to the women and men who came before us to make sure that women had the opportunity to participate in the political process. Women throughout the nation are influencing legislation, keeping our leaders accountable, and running for office.”
NeW will feature quotes from suffragettes, such as Susan B. Anthony, and facts about women’s suffrage. It is important to remember the history of the status of women in America. To participate in the campaign, NeW is asking women to share social media posts about what issues are important to them and what motivates them to vote, followed by the #WhyWomenVote hashtag.
NeW is the nation’s premier organization for conservative university women. NeW educates young women on conservative ideas, cultivates a community of conservative women, and emboldens young women to speak out. In addition to campus and young professional chapters, NeW hosts the National Conference, The Gentlemen Showcase, the Young Women’s Leadership Retreat, the This is What a Conservative Looks Like campaign, and professional development trainings.
