Calling All Women

Plan to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment with other women in Missoula on October 24, 2020.  Let’s honor the women who fought for our rights and women’s equality over the years, including the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

The Jeannette Rankin Peace Center and the League of Women Voters of Missoula are asking you to wear white in honor of the suffragists (and maybe a little yellow and purple trim!). Bring your ballot to the election office (140 N Russell St.) in person Saturday, October 24 between 9 am and 1 pm.  You can either drop it off in the box located in the election office or use the convenient drive by box. Please wear a mask and keep a safe social distance from others.

We would love to have women safely lining Russell St for the duration of those 4 hours, so if you would like to sign up for a shift, contact us at peace@jrpc.org. Please do not bring or wear any partisan political signs or buttons, etc. These are not allowed on election property, and we want this to be a celebration of our progress rather than a continuation of political divisions. There will be suffrage centennial buttons for the first 150 women, information about the Equal Rights Amendment and more.

Our votes could not be more important this year. So before you mail that ballot in, plan to be part of this visual celebration of the impact women make when they vote.

“I believe that the influence of women will save the country before every other power.”
