New York State Bar Association President Scott M. Karson issued the following statement on the 100th anniversary of the enactment of the 19th Amendment, forever guaranteeing women the right to vote.
“Today, we celebrate the trailblazing American women, many of whom called New York State home, who fought the long battle to help our country fulfill the promise of our democracy. This centennial anniversary falls during an unprecedented time in our nation’s history and in the midst of one of the most consequential elections of our times, making it even more vital that all New Yorkers can exercise their right to vote.”
