Votes for Women: A History of the Suffrage Movement

Votes for Women: A History of the Suffrage Movement

The campaign for women’s right to vote lasted over 70 years, beginning with the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, New York and ending with the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. This program addresses questions regarding the lengthy process, such as: Who were the key players in New Hampshire - and the nation? What issues and obstacles did they face? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women’s suffrage amendment? Who was left out when women got the right to vote?

Using historic photos and documents, Liz Tentarelli will discuss these questions and more, guiding us through this historic journey of Women's Rights.

Snow date: Sunday, February 23.

This program is sponsored by a grant from NH Humanities.
