The League of Women Voters of the San Juans and Soroptimist International of Friday Harbor joined together for a short Covid-compliant march to mark 100 years since the certification of the 19th amendment to the Constitution of the United States giving women the right to vote.

Meeting at Linde Park, also known as the ball fields at 1:00 pm today, August 26, they marched down the drive toward Carter.

Lining up 6 feet apart, in rows of 3 across, the LWV and Soroptimist banners lead the march. Dressed in suffragette white and wearing masks marchers honored the day with messages and signs about voting rights, women’s rights, free and fair elections, and participation in democracy.
