Course detail: OSH247 - The Legacies of Lawrence Suffragists

Many remarkable Lawrence suffragists worked tirelessly to win women's right to vote and to run for local and state offices over five Kansas campaigns from 1854 to 1912. They organized suffrage societies, signed petitions, voted in municipal elections, lobbied state legislators and ran for state offices. In the book, "History of Woman Suffrage", Susan B. Anthony "often said that Lawrence was the headquarters of the movement" in Kansas. Based on the words of these suffragists published in newspapers, we'll consider how their persuasive arguments and political strategies still resonate today. Come celebrate their legacies during the centennial of the 19th Amendment in 2020.
