“When Women Won the Right to Vote: An American Fiction”
By Dr. Lisa Tetrault, Carnegie Mellon University, author of The Myth of Seneca Falls: Memory and the Women’s Suffrage Movement, 1848-1898
Wednesday, September 9th, 4:30-6:00
(A Zoom lecture followed by a Q and A)
When women won passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, they did not win the right to vote, despite repeated claims that they did. Just what, then, did the woman suffrage amendment do? Clarifying this history, this talk also positions 1920 as the middle of a much larger story about the pursuit of voting rights, a struggle that remains unfinished and ongoing.
This talk is open to the public. Please pre-register online to receive a Zoom link.
