Protest, Progress, and The Vote: Modern Lessons Learned From Women’s Suffrage
One-hundred years ago, the 19th Amendment provided the largest mass voter enfranchisement in American history. In the final decade of the women's suffrage movement, from 1909 to 1920, leaders wrestled with contentious questions about the most effective methods for effecting social change--debating the use of militant, even violent tactics, as well as hunger strikes and relentless public protests. What lessons have we learned from this movement and how can those lessons be applied as we continue to fight for voting rights in the United States? Join VCU Votes and the VCU University College's Common Book Program for a virtual screening and panel discussion around PBS's docuseries The Vote. Panelists will include Dr. Allie Reckendorf, Dr. Kimberly Matthews, Dr. Julianne Guillard, and Chelsea Higgs Wise, and the discussion will be moderated by VCU's Commonwealth Times Editor Hannah Eason.
