This 2020 we commemorate the centennial of the 19th amendment, which guarantees women’s constitutional right to vote.
Join Sedna Inspirations as we honor the courage and achievements of great women past and present with our Celebration 2020 hat collection. Get your 2020 Celebration hat today and inspire others with the lessons we must keep in mind to build a society where equal rights are the norm.
Positive, meaningful change is rarely easy: It takes time, resilience and work.
The idea of women voting was unthinkable to the 19th century mentality, and the beginnings of the suffragist movement which began in 1848 were met with much resistance.
These women for 72 years showed how courage, dedication, persistence, collaboration and hope can triumph over barriers, opposition, defeats, and intimidation.
The example set by these women is timeless and inspires all those who fight for equality every day.
Be the Change You Want to See in the World
“We were but a handful,” reminisced Susan B. Anthony in a 1902 letter to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, with whom she had founded in1869 the National Woman Suffrage Association.
Change begins with one person, or with a handful of people. To bring about improvements we must be the change we want to see and inspire others with our example.
In fact, in the same letter Anthony marveled at how their cause was not a handful of people anymore, but a veritable army. “These strong, courageous, capable young women will take our place and complete our work,” she wrote.
Once more, Anthony’s intuition was proved correct. The 19th amendment was ratified on August 18, 1920, 14 years after her death.
Let’s Celebrate and Fight Together
Our Celebration 2020 hat collection salutes the achievements of the women of the past and reminds us that the struggle for equal rights is work still in progress, a truth that has never been as relevant as in this 2020.
The hats are available in cotton, corduroy, and sweater fabric; our hats celebrate and empower with a jubilant embroidered front design with the words “Momentum!” or “She Persisted!” on the back. The “19th amendment” is embroidered on the side. The selection of colors includes purple, gold, yellow, white, ivory and black.
This is a time to celebrate and strive to keep our momentum going. Start today: Shop online, get your Celebration 2020 hat and persist in the fight for a better future for all!
