On June 4, 1919 Congress paved the way for the right for women to vote and the state ratification process for the 19th amendment began. Ohio was the 5th state to ratify the amendment. On August 18, 2020 the 19th amendment was ratified and women were granted full voting rights in the United States

To commemorate this historic event the Ohio legislature passed legislation to create a statewide delegation to honor the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in 2020. High Heels and Politics narrator Mary Anne Christie is one of the members of this Ohio delegation and will be coordinating with other accomplished and remarkable women the yearlong celebration. 

To kick off the festivities - the Cincinnati Reds are having a special evening at the ballpark to celebrate the right for women to vote on Saturday, July 6th, 2019. The Reds will be playing the Cleveland Indians at 4:10pm. There will be a variety of events that day – on and off the field – there will be special ticket pricing and areas for larger groups.

Please plan on attending this event, it will be a historic and fun evening. There are many other celebrations being planned  throughout the year and we will post the information on the events when it is available.

Women have had the right to vote for almost one hundred years now. Most women have never lived in a time when they could not vote. Because of the work of those before us, many women today have seen their name on a political ballot and hold very important and powerful political positions. Women in and out of office all over America have the rights today because of the tireless efforts of those brave women who came before us. We invite all of you in joining us in celebration of one hundred years of women's' suffrage. The last hundred years was only the beginning, imagine what women in the next hundred years will accomplish.
