Celebrating courageous suffragists who made votes for women possible
We are approaching the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment granting equal voting rights for women in the United States. Help us to tell the story of the courageous suffragists who made votes for women possible. To celebrate the anniversaries of women gaining the right to vote, we have launched a statewide women's history initiative caller Her Vote. Her Voice. that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage.
ABOUT Her Vote. Her Voice. (HVHV) is a project of the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation. To lead the HVHV initiative, a Delegation was appointed by Governor Kristi Noem to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment.

VISION The Women's Vote Centennial Delegation is designed to serve as a communications center for the collection and dissemination of information about South Dakota events, plans, and resources for the centennial of the 19th Amendment. This diverse group of nonpartisan professionals brings relevance to the historical topic while also being a connector to the present that history is happening and is being made still today.
- To collaborate with others to provide education and stimulate dialogue that explores the generations-long fight for universal woman suffrage.
- To encourage eligible individuals to cast their ballot and make their voices heard. "Your vote is your voice!"
- To work with the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation to financially support the ongoing mission of the State Historical Society to preserve, promote, nurture and sustain the historical and cultural heritage of South Dakota.
GOALS Our goal is to raise $1 million by January 2021 with the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation to support South Dakota women's history projects.
