Women’s Long Battle for the Vote: Surprises on the Road to the Nineteenth Amendment
Ellen Carol DuBois, Distinguished Research Professor UCLA
Women’s Long Battle for the Vote: Surprises on the Road to the Nineteenth Amendment is a general audience lecture covering the seventy five years of the U.S. woman suffrage movement with an emphasis on things you might not already know: the universal suffrage vision with which the movement began; the unusual route by which woman suffrage first spoke to average women; how so many women were able to vote before the Nineteenth Amendment’s ratification; and how close the amendment came to not passing in 1920.
Join us for an exciting seminar with Professor DuBois, one of the leading historians of the US women’s suffrage movement. Her book on the same topic was published earlier this year and has received rave reviews.
