Partisan Women in the Suffrage Era

Lecture Description

This lecture focuses on women’s participation in American political parties before and just after 1920, illustrating the different ways women worked toward being “on the inside” of the partisan arena. It describes women’s partisan traditions from the earliest days of the republic to 1924, when party leaders realized they need not fear a “women’s bloc.” It raises questions about the gendered nature of politics.
