The Surprising Road to Woman Suffrage, presented by Dr. Ellen Carol DuBois
This engaging illustrated lecture will introduce the audience to a fresh perspective on the long struggle for women’s voting rights. The centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment provides an opportunity to look at roads not taken, generations of activists involved, obstacles faced and overcome, and what was, and wasn’t, won as a result.
Ellen Carol DuBois, Distinguished Research Professor of History and Gender Studies, UCLA, has been researching and writing about the woman suffrage movement for her entire career. She is the author, most recently, of Suffrage: Women’s Long Battle for the Vote.
