What does it mean to reclaim the 20’s?

Reclaim the 20’s is year-long digital series celebrating the 100-year anniversary of women earning the right to vote in a historically accurate frame. Meaning, we talk openly about the fact that while all women were granted the right to vote in 1920, not all women were able to exercise that right. In fact, most discussion of the adoption of the 19th amendment is done through the frame of a white woman’s experience and often leaves out what Black women and other women of color did to help make it happen.


In this series, we want to celebrate what women of color did to help women finally get the right to vote, what challenges they still experienced even after they were given the “right” to vote, and what we can do now, 100 years later, to ensure we are writing and making our own history.


2020 is a pivotal year for many reasons. 100 years after women were given the right to vote, women, especially Latinas and women of color, have the opportunity to change the outcome in every election in the United States. Latinas are the largest group of women of color at 30 million. Imagine if every Latina eligible to vote actually voted? We would never be ignored again. Let’s #Reclaimthe20s.

I grew up being told, “you can’t do that because you’re a girl” or “your brother can because he’s a boy” and I hated hearing that. It’s been something that has tormented me my entire life.
