Women in American History

Women in American History

The nineteenth amendment, which secured women’s right to vote in the United States, was ratified at the dawn of the twentieth century. The fight for suffrage had begun nearly a century earlier and had emerged from the abolition movement. This seminar examines women’s continued efforts to establish equality – among themselves, as well as with men- in the century that followed the ratification of the nineteenth amendment.

This program will be conducted as a discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
