Program Description

Event Details

Join us for this lively and engaging presentation commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Learn more about the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, a 72-year struggle for women to obtain the legal right to vote in all states without restrictions.  The grass-roots story of women’s suffrage is a fascinating and a remarkable one: how it happened, who the players were, the obstacles they faced, the setbacks and personal hardships they endured, and the nail-biting race in the final state necessary to ratify the amendment.
