The League of Women Voters of Boulder County this week will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment with a panel discussion "100 Years of Women's Suffrage: Where Are We Now and What Lies Ahead?"

The discussion, which will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday is being co-presented by Longmont Museum and KGNU Community Radio. 

The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution declaring for the first time that American women, like men, deserved all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, was ratified on Aug. 18, 1920. Thursday's discussion will feature a multi-generational panel "with four civically engaged women as they reflect on the century-long struggle that led to women’s suffrage, what’s happened in the 100 years since, and what work remains to be done," according to a news release.

The discussion can be viewed live on Longmont Public Media or on the museum's Facebook page.
