A Brief History of Women Suffrage, 1840-1920

Thursday, September 17, 2020

This program will discuss the history of the suffrage movement, including its controversies, Iowans' roles, and its impact.

This year, 2020, marks the Centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which enfranchised 27 American women. This virtual program is presented on Zoom by Dr. Karen M. Kedrowski, Director of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics and Professor of Political Science at Iowa State University. The Catt Center conducts research on women and politics, with a focus on Iowa, and promotes civic engagement.
