Course Detail: LECT-8541 - Women's Suffrage Movement

The woman's suffrage movement was born in the 1840s and fought over eight decades until the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed in 1920. This year is the centennial of that amendment. This class will discuss the struggles over the decades, including the famous Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, the impact of the Civil War and Reconstruction, shifting goals and strategies of suffragists, and how both suffragists and anti-suffragists led their cause into the 20th century. Come celebrate and remember the strong and dedicated women who fought for the enfranchisement of millions.
