August 26, 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which guarantees the right for women to vote. Macomb County is celebrating this important anniversary by assembling this digital gallery of pictures, statements, and videos.

“Due to the pandemic we can’t honor the occasion with a rally or march the way the original suffragists might have. Just like the fight to gain the vote for women 100 years ago, nothing comes easy in 2020,” said Macomb County Clerk & Register of Deeds Fred Miller, whose office coordinated the project. “But now, as back then, the power of women’s voices cannot be denied.”

Earlier in the summer, a call was put out for contributions to the project to help articulate the impact of the 19th Amendment and ‘Votes for Women’ including pictures, selfies, written statements, and videos. Video statements from Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller are among the video contributions to the project.

The centerpiece of the project is a video featuring 18 leaders who are women reflecting on the struggle for and significance of this event in American history. The video features local, county, state, and national leaders who are women with connections to Macomb County.   

IT'S NOT TOO LATE! We’re assembling a multimedia project made up of voices, images, and perspectives of the women of Macomb County and we need YOU! Looking for your contribution, large or small, to this effort to help articulate what the 19th Amendment and ‘Votes for Women’ means to you. That includes tributes to and images of inspiring women, especially Macomb County trailblazers, or describing in your words how women make America great.

There are several ways to participate:

Email clerkmessages@macombgov.org with questions.

THANK YOU for helping Macomb County
celebrate this historic milestone!

“Now all we need is to continue to speak the truth fearlessly, and we shall add to our number those who will turn the scale to the side of equal and full justice in all things." 

-- Lucy Stone (1818-1893) 
Called the "morning star" of the women's rights movement, it was Stone who influenced Susan B. Anthony to take up the cause of women's suffrage.
