RED OAK, Iowa – One hundred years after women in Iowa, and the country, gained the right to vote, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, the first woman elected to federal office from the state of Iowa, and Senator Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, are paying tribute to the suffragettes who paved the way for women everywhere.

Grassley shares the story of his mother, who was one of the first women in Iowa to vote under the 19th Amendment.

Last June, Senator Ernst joined all of her female Senate colleagues on a measure to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Congress passing the 19th Amendment, which provided women across the country the right to vote.

The resolution seeks to honor, reaffirm, and preserve the ratification of the 19th Amendment in further promoting the core values of our democracy as promised by the U.S. Constitution.
