Please note: This talk is part of our 2016 Fall Conference. You must have registered for the conference to attend this event.

It took women almost a century to win the vote, and the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment will be celebrated in 2020. This session will highlight some of the exciting moments of women’s political struggles and explore the lives of the women leaders who brought about the suffrage victory and championed gender equality in politics and public society.

Led by Melanie Gustafson, Associate Professor of History, University of Vermont.
