The Vote is the Emblem of Our Equality

Wednesday, September 15, 2021

August 26, 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote. In this program, historian Kathy Wilson investigates why women had to fight for decades to get the right to vote, why black and minority women were excluded from the national suffrage movement, and why we still struggle with women's rights today. If you would like to attend this free virtual program, please email Public Services Librarian, Becca Klein at rklein@newton.lib.ia.us to receive the link to join.
