Working for Suffrage: How Class and Race Shaped the U.S. Suffrage Movement
  • Date: Friday, March 18, 2022
  • Time: 1:00 pm
  • Location: Online

The fight for women’s suffrage was a long-fought battle with support from national well-organized groups. Working-class women involved in grassroots efforts and other reform movements played a significant role in the fight for the right to vote. Historians Page Harrington, Cathleen Cahill, and Alison Parker will discuss these women and the roles they played.

Women’s History Month programming is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Denise Gwyn Ferguson.
