Enjoy your morning cup of coffee while learning about suffrage history! This mug displays the 50 state flags and when women were given the right to vote. This is a 12oz mug and comes in a commemorative gift box.
An excerpt from the gift box reads...
"It was 1920, exactly 100 years ago, when U.S. Congress passed the Nineteenth Amendment. After 72 years of American women's persistent political activism, the new amendment gave all American women the right to vote - at least in theory.
In Southern states, American women of color remained disenfranchised until the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which made it illegal to prevent Americans from voting based on racial discrimination. And even then. enforcing the Act in the wake of Jim Crow in the South was a challenge."
