Join the movement with this suffragette lanyard in the purple, gold, and white colors of the National Woman’s Party. The inside of the lanyard features the Party’s slogan: “Forward out of darkness, leave behind the Night. Forward out of error, forward into light.” Legislation to give women the right to vote was introduced before Congress and failed twice before the 19th Amendment. But on June 4, 1919, after the House of Representatives had already approved it, the Senate finally approved the 19th Amendment by one vote. However, it didn’t officially become a law until the three-fourths majority of states, that being Tennessee, ratified it on August 18, 1920, over a year after it was approved by Congress. This suffragette lanyard and the words on the inside commemorates the long struggle and grit of the original suffragettes.
