For some who take our most basic rights for granted, it may be hard to imagine that for nearly 150 years in our republic, American women were denied the right to vote. After decades of struggle, that included protest marches, arrests, physical attacks, verbal abuse, harassment and retaliation against women for advocating suffrage, Congress finally acted, passing the 19th Amendment, which became law on August 26, 1920. The California Nurses Association will honor that tradition with a unique celebration marking the 90th anniversary on August 26 in Sacramento, Calif.
