Honoring Trailblazing Iowa Women and Celebrating
100th Anniversary of Iowa Ratifying 19th Amendment
Hosted by the Iowa Federation of Republican Women
Iowa female firsts and other trailblazers are supporting our event that honors the brave Suffragettes who soldiered on through generations of opposition, indignities, imprisonment and even torture to fight for voter equality.
The Iowa Suffrage Centennial Gala will take us all back to that time and celebrate how far we’ve come.
Registration starts at 5 p.m., followed by Cocktail Reception, Dinner and Program. Doors close at 6 p.m. Period costumes are invited, but not required. We urge guests to arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. to ensure timely registration, stroll the grounds and experience the stunning and historically significant Hall of Laureates.
