On August 17, 2020, the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission (WSCC) and Twitter will present a live virtual event with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton commemorating 100 years of the 19th Amendment and women’s right to vote.

The event, titled “Women’s Fight for the Vote: Celebrating 100 Years of the 19th Amendment,” will feature a conversation between Secretary Clinton and Elaine Weiss, author of The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote. Weiss’s book is currently being adapted into a television series by Steven Spielberg’s production company Amblin Partners, with Secretary Clinton as an Executive Producer. The discussion between Secretary Clinton and Ms. Weiss on August 17th will be moderated by Dr. Carla Hayden, Librarian of Congress and both the first woman and first African American to lead the national library of the United States.

Americans across the country can commemorate the centennial by tuning in for the free livestreamed event on Twitter on August 17th at 12 p.m. Eastern Time. During this keynote conversation, Secretary Clinton and Ms. Weiss will explore the history of women’s fight for the vote and discuss how the victory of the 19th Amendment forged the path for women’s political gains over the following century, including Secretary Clinton becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in 2016.

“I’m excited to join the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission in commemorating this historic moment, and grateful to Congress for recognizing the importance of the centennial by creating the commission to ensure the anniversary is honored nationwide,” said Secretary Clinton. “The centennial provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on this history and ensure that the next generation carries the legacy of the suffragists forward.”
