The program will pay tribute to the lasting achievement of the American suffragists.
During the early 20th Century American suffragists used a fascinating array of strategies to win support for their cause from legislators and the public. From leading parades to hunger striking in prison, from coordinating campaigns to defeat opponents to wielding women's growing power as voters, suffragists skillfully planned effective actions that led them to victory in 1920.
Using slides and stories from suffrage history, author Robert P. J. Cooney, Jr. briefly looks at a dozen strategies women adopted to win their political liberty. His lively presentation celebrates the colors, symbols and achievements of this first great civil rights movement of the 20th Century.
