C-U Steps Up for Women's History Month

Smile Politely

Published Date: March 2, 2020

Is this winter dragging? How long, really, until it’s spring for real?

Take a deep breath and join the blast of energy that will span all of March for Women’s History Month. The ante is up this year, preparing for what may be the most important day of the month, the Illinois General Primary on March 17th.

 It’s all too obvious that some of the rights we have taken for granted are once again under attack. #MeToo is having some victories, but the struggle goes on. March is the perfect time to stand together.

All month the spotlight is on the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote. The 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”
