Wed, Aug 26 – The Centennial of Women’s Suffrage
August 26, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Noted historians discuss the long struggle to gain the vote for women, the political innovations and protest that characterized the woman’s suffrage movement, and how racism nearly caused the movement to fail. The speakers will also address how the 19th Amendment was only part of the story. Three other constitutional amendments, multiple state and federal laws, and continuous vigilance were and are needed to ensure the right to vote and access to the polls for all women.
