Sunday March 22 at 2:00pm    
In the downstairs Archer Room (through the lobby stairwell)

Sign-up Required
(event is over)

Take a march through suffrage history. Explore the stories of leaders, tactics, losses, and victories as women worked for the right to vote. See how Wisconsin fit within the larger story of enfranchisement and analyze the conflict and complications that suffragists faced as they sought the right to vote. You'll also learn about what the movement failed to do -- like give African American women and Native American women the right to vote -- and we'll discuss how women have been involved in politics since the passage of the amendment. Presented by Simone Munson, a Special Collections Librarian with the Wisconsin Historical Society Archives.
