GFWC Official Calls

The 2020 GFWC Annual Convention is particularly significant because this year we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment. This year we are remembering the rose and all the brave women and clubwomen who fought for our right to participate in the political process. Throughout our time together in Atlanta, yellow roses will be used to symbolize the suffrage movement and celebrate our right to vote. Yellow roses were worn by suffragists and lawmakers throughout the movement as a sign of support for the passage of the 19th Amendment.

GFWC honors and celebrates its clubwomen such as Carrie Chapman Catt, Phoebe Hearst, Julia Ward Howe, and Lucy Stone who helped lead the movement which would secure the vote in 1920. We also honor and remember GFWC International Past Presidents Sarah Platt Decker, Ellen Henrotin, Anna Pennybacker, and Eva Perry Moore who also played major roles in the march towards suffrage.

Remember the rose and join us in celebrating with the Georgia Federation, a century of voting, and all of the women who paved the way for us to arrive here!
