Event description

Description


The women’s suffrage movement was not always a cohesive or inclusive space for everyone who fought for the vote, nor did the Nineteenth Amendment bring about political enfranchisement for all women. Conflicts around political philosophy, campaign tactics, and most notably, issues of race, led to a movement that was deeply fractured. Allison Lange of the Wentworth Institute of Technology will moderate a conversation with Corinne T. Field of the University of Virginia, Manisha Sinha of the University of Connectitcut and independent historian Barbara Berenson as they further examine the divisions inherent in the movement and look at how other social reform activists have historically struggled with coalition building and intersectionality.

This program is made possible through the co-sponsorship of the Greater Boston Women's Vote Centennial (presented by Mayor Walsh's Office of Women's Advancement).
