Press release on 19th Amendment celebration

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), the first female elected to the U.S. Senate from the State of Iowa and the first female combat veteran elected to the U.S. Senate, is joining all of her female colleagues on the Senate floor to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment in the U.S. Senate.

Senator Ernst will speak at approximately 3:40pm CT/4:40pm EST

In addition to the floor event, the Senate will consider a resolution, introduced by all 25 female Senators, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment.

Senators will wear a yellow rose, donated by the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission, on their lapel throughout the day. The yellow rose, a symbol of the women’s suffrage movement, evokes the historic debate by the Tennessee legislature prior to becoming the final state to ratify the 19th Amendment in 1920. Those who supported women’s enfranchisement wore yellow roses, and antisuffragists wore red roses.

Following passage by the U.S. House of Representatives, the Senate, and three-fourths of the states, the 19th Amendment was added to the Constitution on August 26, 1920.
