In honor of the August 26, 2020 centennial celebration of woman’s suffrage in the United States, NCWHS is leading the effort to develop a nation-wide Votes for Women Trail. The Trail will highlight the role of each state in the 72-year battle to achieve women’s suffrage. Will you join this effort?
This project is truly a grassroots effort. Each state will have a coordinator who will lead volunteers from across their state to find and to research those sites that have a history with the women’s suffrage movement. They enter that information into a comprehensive database that will be used to populate an interactive nationwide map, which will - for the first time - represent the complete story of the struggle for women’s suffrage. The ultimate objective of this project is to show how social change occurs, to honor the suffrage movement’s countless participants, and to inspire future generations to treasure their right to vote.

Women’s history is everywhere. We find, save and share the historic sites that focus on our history. No American History without Women's History: No America without Women
The National Collaborative for Women’s History Sites (NCWHS) was created in October 2001 by representatives of more than twenty historical sites linked to American women and some twenty others from organizations devoted to preserving women’s history.
