The Bold and Brave was our program theme for the year — theme is taken from the title of a children’s book by Senator Kristen Gillibrand, Bold and Brave: Ten Heroes Who Won Women the Right to Vote. This year we will step into the history of the suffrage movement in America, from the early days of the movement with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony to almost 150 years later, when the 19th Amendment was signed by congress and ratified by 36 states.

AAUW PT and UWF have been awarded a Votes for Women Centennial Grant through the Washington State Historical Society to fund a centennial celebration in Jefferson County. However, the health Covid crisis hit, so our March and April presentations specifically about the Women Vote! were cancelled and moved into the 2020/2021 programming.
She Persisted was the program theme honoring women who have persevered – despite barriers – in their fight for justice, equality, recognition, education and other issues. We recognize the determination and resolve of women everywhere who are raising their voices, challenging the status quo and fighting for their beliefs. Chelsea Clinton’s new books, She Persisted, and She Persisted Around the World are the catalyst for the theme.
