Brian Sandoval on Civil Rights

 


Nevada gave women the right to vote in 1914, ahead of USA

As Nevada prepares to celebrate 150 years of statehood, we must consider how far we have come and prepare for what lies ahead. 2014 is not just the anniversary of Nevada's statehood. It also marks the centennial year of the approval of women's suffrage in our state.

Nevada gave women the right to vote in 1914, five years before the rest of the nation adopted the 19th Amendment in 1919. It is my hope that the celebration of women's suffrage and the commemoration of Nevada's 150th birthday will provide a joint platform for examining who we are--and who we can be.

Nevadans are rightfully proud of their history. We are also cognizant of the world around us. And we are ever mindful of those students whose faces inspire us to plan big for a bright future. Tonight, we can take pride in our progress.
