In 1919, decades of activism by suffragists culminated in Congress’s passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, affirming that the right to vote "shall not be denied... on account of sex." On the centennial anniversary of this historical legislation, we celebrate not only the amendment itself but the ideals it represents—the bravery, tenacity, and ingenuity that our foremothers embodied in their hard-fought battle for equal representation under the law, a lineage of progress stretching from the founders of the Women’s Right’s movement at Seneca Falls to the activists of color whose fight for representation continued decades longer under Jim Crow to contemporary political leaders who “nevertheless persist” in the ongoing struggle for gender equality. In the spirit of this legacy, we’re proud to present a lineup of bold women writers whose work may well help usher in a better future for us all.
