100 Year Women's Suffrage Celebration and Events

On Thursday January 16, Indiana will observe the 100 year anniversary of it's ratification of the 19th Amendment. It promises to be an exciting and meaningful day, with special events at the Statehouse with Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, historian Anita Morgan, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana and the Capital City Chorus, followed by a special resolution in the Indiana General Assembly. 

Throughout 2020, women across the state will be joining together to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote. With this commemoration, Girl Scouts of Central Indiana is very excited to be able to offer programs to our Girl Scouts that not only commemorate this anniversary but also the opportunity to educate girls on what this means, how it pertains to them and the world they live in, and participate in new career opportunities that are now available for women because of moments in history like this.

We hope to have Girl Scouts from all over central Indiana join us in these exciting program opportunities during 2020.
