'Votes for Women'

Votes for Women

Trigg County Democratic Woman’s Club members Jan Culwell (left, yellow sash) and Rita Culbertson (green sash), president of the chapter, marched in the 19th Amendment Centennial Celebration Parade on Aug. 18 in downtown Hopkinsville. Also known as the Susan B. Anthony Amendment, 100 years ago on Aug. 18, 1920, voting rights for women passed the Senate and became effective eight days later. With this action, almost 27 million American women were given a voice in U.S. government.
