Women’s History Month – When Women Won the Right to Vote: A History Unfinished. Join us to hear Professor Lisa Tetrault of Carnegie Mellon University speak about the 19th Amendment. When women won passage of the 19th 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? Dr. Tetrault positions 1920 as the middle of a much larger story about the pursuit of voting rights, a struggle that is today unfinished and ongoing.
Dr. Tetrault is Associate Professor of History at Carnegie Mellon University, a leading suffrage scholar, and author of the prize-winning book, The Myth of Seneca Falls: Memory and the Women’s Suffrage Movement, 1848-1898.
Dr. Tetrault will speak on Mon., March 15, 2021 at 7:00 PM
