The Commission partnered with the Nashville-based all-female singer-songwriter collective, Song Suffragettes, to host livestreamed weekly performances from the Listening Room Cafe every Monday in August in celebration of the centennial.
Like in all social movements, music helped to inspire and unify the suffragists who were dedicated to expanding American democracy. And these activists not only secured the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment, they also broke barriers and opened up new opportunities for women—women like the Song Suffragettes. The centennial concerts featured 24 performers, and headliners of the August series included hitmakers such as Lindsay Ell, Maddie & Tae, Ashley McBryde, and Runaway June. These shows received more than 9.8K views on the Song Suffragettes Youtube page.
