Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to be Silenced is the 2021 National Women's History Month theme. The theme "captures the spirit of these challenging times. Since most 2020 women’s suffrage centennial celebrations were curtailed, the National Women’s History Alliance is extending the annual theme for 2021 to “Valiant Women of the Vote: Refusing to Be Silenced.”
"The National Women’s History Alliance is determined that the important roles of multicultural suffragists and voting rights activists continue to be recognized and honored. We refuse to allow their voices to be silenced, even by a pandemic.
"Many organizations have already rescheduled and extended their centennial events into 2021. With national attention moving on, 2021 will particularly recognize the remarkable new research, grassroots political activity, and artistic developments in every state.
"These deepen our understanding and shine a brilliant new light on local women’s political involvement, development, and leadership. Despite tremendous opposition, they refused to be silenced."
