Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution officially adopted on Aug. 26, 1920




The yellow rose is a symbol of the women's suffrage movement.

       In 1920, suffragists and anti-suffragists met in Nashville, Tennessee to lobby the state legislature for and against ratifying the Nineteenth Amendment.          Both sides wore rose-shaped pins to indicate which side of the battle they were on: suffragists work yellow roses, and anti-suffragists wore red roses.
