Event description
Join us for a panel discussion on the history of the suffrage movement and the media's role in the fight to win women the right to vote.

About this Event

This year we celebrate the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed women the right to vote. In this panel discussion, our speakers will examine media coverage of the suffrage movement as well as the media outlets that suffragists developed to get their message out. And we'll examine whose rights truly were guaranteed in 1920 and who had to wait.

Scheduled speakers:

Angela Dodson: Writer, editor and consultant; author of "Remember the Ladies: Celebrating Those Who Fought for Freedom at the Ballot Box."

Teri Finneman: Associate professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Kansas, author of "Press Portrayals of Women Politicians, 1870s-2000s."

Linda Lumsden: University of Arizona professor; teaches courses in social justice journalism; journalism history; journalism ethics; and journalism, gender, and race. Her most recent book is "Social Justice Journalism: A Cultural History of Social Movement Media from Abolition to #womensmarch."

Linda Steiner: Professor at the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland; her research areas include media ethics, new and emerging forms of journalism, and journalism history, especially the periodicals published by women suffragists.

Sally Roesch Wagner: Adjunct faculty member in the Syracuse University Renée Crown University Honors Program whose books include "We Want Equal Rights: How Suffragists Were Influenced by Native American Women."
