Washington D.C., Media – One hundred years ago today, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified, securing American women the right to vote.

In celebration of that historic achievement, First Lady Melania Trump unveiled her “Building the Movement” Exhibit in front of the White House earlier this week. The display features artwork related to women’s suffrage from children across the United States.

“Recognizing that women contribute to the strength and security of our Nation, my Administration will always make supporting women and working families a top priority,” President Trump wrote in a Women’s Equality Day Proclamation last night.

Last December, the Trump Administration secured 12 weeks of paid family leave for Federal workers, and the President continues to call on Congress to pass a similar paid family leave program nationwide. President Trump also doubled the child tax credit with his 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and he signed record funding into law for the Child Care and Development Block Grant that supports working mothers and families.
