2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage in the United States of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed the right of women to vote. This was a significant milestone that continues to inspire and empower women around the world.

To acknowledge the historical impact of this event and to support and amplify the great significance for women, not-for-profit Road Scholar has announced a new collection of global “women only” programs… just in time for 2020!

Building on the sacrifices and efforts of our suffragette sisters, over the past 50 years, Boomer women have done so much to redefine the role of women in the world, in the workplace and at home. The programs are also a great way to make new friends!

These programs support Road Scholar’s decision to create a social media campaign dedicated to the accomplishments of women, baby boomers and beyond.  

These programs may be rooted in our rich history, but, they are very much forward looking. They want to inspire women of all ages to dream, grow and, ultimately, change the world!

Let’s explore a few of these amazing programs together! Which one will *you* choose?
