Race, Region, and Rights: Recasting the U.S. Women’s Suffrage Movement

Let us re-imagine women’s campaigns for the ballot by placing race and region at the center of analysis. This shift in perspective forces us to rethink not only the chronology and geography of the story, but also the arenas in which critical battles were fought.

Lecture Description

Explores the ways that race shaped the women’s rights and women’s suffrage movement from the mid-19th to the late 20th century in all regions of the United States.
