Arkansas Week July 26, 2019
(The 19th Amendment) It took Arkansas less than two months to become the 12th state to ratify. (The Feminine Franchise) Of course it took a lot longer and a lot of hard, dedicated work to reach that point. (July 29, 1919) But reach it they did, and it helped change politics in Arkansas and America forever. (Suffrage Centennial) Arkansas women at the polls, an anniversary worth celebrating.
Panelists: Nell Matthews – Spokesperson, League of Women Voters of Arkansas; Lottie Shackelford – Political and Civic Leader; Sen. Missy Irvin – (R) Mountain View; and Cathy Koehler – AEA President.
