Why They Marched: Celebrating the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage

March 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Why They Marched uncovers a broader and more diverse story waiting to be told, providing a fresh account of one of the most significant moments of political mobilization in American history.

For far too long, the history of how American women won the right to vote has been told as the tale of a few iconic leaders, all white and native-born. Why They Marched uncovers a broader and more diverse story waiting to be told, providing a fresh account of one of the most significant moments of political mobilization in American history. As important as the goal of suffrage was, the struggle was always far broader than just the franchise, and it spoke to fundamental questions about women’s roles in politics and modern life, the relationship between citizenship and voting rights, and more. Feminism and women’s rights are an ongoing struggle with no clear endpoint in sight and the women’s suffrage movement is a vital part of that story.

Free. Reservation required via Eventbrite link.
