PBS MULTIPLATFORM CONTENT HONORING SUFFRAGISTS, FEMINIST LEADERS AND MODERN-DAY CHANGEMAKERS CURRENTLY STREAMING ON PBS VIDEO APP AND PBS.ORG
This summer, PBS launched a slate of multiplatform content to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s constitutional right to vote in the United States. In honor of the Women’s Vote Centennial, this slate recognizes suffragists, feminist leaders and modern-day female changemakers.
PBS is also committed to lifting these women up and sharing their stories on social media channels by spearheading a virtual trading card campaign, dubbed “Trailblazers: A Century of Extraordinary Women.”
The virtual trading cards are available via this link, where they can be downloaded and shared on all major social platforms. Links to each TRAILBLAZERS program and the 19 women featured in the campaign are as follows. For more information about the “Trailblazers: A Century of Extraordinary Women” trading card campaign, click here.
