Commemorative Calendar for the 19th Amendment

Purple and yellow text on a white background. Text reads 1920 - 2020. 19th Amendment Centennial National Archives.  The dash in the date range is replaced with a stylized lily graphic.The 19th Amendment was ratified in 1920, but this landmark event was not the beginning or the end of the story for women and the struggle for the right to vote.

Join us in 2020 as we commemorate this centennial year with 12 stories from our holdings. Each month, we’ll share a new collection of downloadable designs including a calendar page, Facebook cover photo, and an occasional mobile device lock screen. You can save and print these designs, set them as wallpaper, whatever works for you!

Each item will highlight a specific moment in the woman suffrage movement, designed to inspire you throughout 2020. We'll share a note across our social media channels when each new collection is ready. 

Interested in learning more about the women featured each month? Make sure to check out the special blog post that accompanies each release for the stories behind the designs.


Astronauts Ochoa, Payette, and Jernigan, all wearing red, white, and navy striped shirts, hold the gold, white, and purple striped banner of the suffrage movement while on board the space shuttle.

In 1993, Ellen Ochoa became the first Hispanic woman to go to space. Six years later, astronauts Ochoa, Julie Payette, and Tamara Jernigan brought an original suffrage banner (used ca. 1916-20) aboard the space shuttle. The banner came from the Sewall-Belmont House and Ochoa used it in a public service announcement from space, when she discussed the Presidential Commission on the Celebration of Women in American History. During her career, Ochoa was awarded NASA's highest distinction, the Distinguished Service Medal, and also served as the 11th Director of the Johnson Space Center.
