Author's Talk: Women Fighting for the Right to Vote
Time & Location
About The Event
Angela P. Dodson will speak about her recent book on women's suffrage, “Remember the Ladies: Celebrating Those who Fought for Freedom at the Ballot Box.” All are welcome! Refreshments will be served.
In her comprehensive survey of the cause, "REMEMBER THE LADIES: Celebrating Those Who Fought for Freedom at the Ballot Box," journalist and former New York Times editor Angela P. Dodson documents one of the longest, most hard-won struggles for civil rights in our country’s history.
Dodson’s rich narrative spans our country’s history, from even before Abigail Adams urged her husband John, in vain, to “Remember the ladies” as the Founding Fathers declared independence and shaped the new nation. The long struggle that led to the 1920 ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment granting U.S. women suffrage is being recognized and widely discussed during this year’s lead-up up to the centennial anniversary in 2020. Dobson's timely book provides essential historical context for today’s conversations about women’s issues and their role in the electoral process.
