Centuries of Struggles: Women Who Led the Way into American Politics
November 5, 2016
11:00 am - 12:15 pm
Dudley H. Davis Center
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.
