Help Us Add Flagler Suffragist, Alice Scott Abbott, to the Florida Women’s Hall of Fame.
This past March, AAUW’s Flagler’s Women’s Vote Centennial Committee nominated Alice Scott Abbott for the 2020 Florida Women’s Hall of Fame. On August 13th, the Florida Commission on the Status of Women announced that our nominee had been selected as a top ten finalist from 70 applications. Watch the announcement here
Governor DeSantis is expected to choose three of the top ten for this prestigious honor by September 1st.
Dear Governor Ron DeSantis:
Please vote for Bunnell, FL suffragist Alice Scott Abbott to be entered into the 2020 Florida Women’s Hall of Fame. She deserves special recognition for her historic achievements in the fight to ratify the 19th Amendment. Sadly she died of cancer just days before the historic vote of November 2, 1920 for which she tirelessly fought. Thanks to her efforts nearly 200 Flagler County women registered to vote in that election, 52 of whom were African American.
These are just a few of her accomplishments. The others are well documented in her nomination package to the Florida Commission on the Status of Women. She deserves to be featured in the Capitol Rotunda in Tallahassee.
Let’s add Alice!
