2020 marks the 100th year since the United States guaranteed women the right to vote by adopting the 19th Amendment. Our Suffrage Cloche adopts the movement’s colors—purple, white, and gold—and celebrates the bravery and determination of the people who worked tirelessly to have the Amendment introduced into Congress in 1878, and for another almost 40 years to have the Amendment ratified in 1920.
