Description

Join the Arizona Historical Society on Wednesday, August 26 for a very special virtual program commemorating Women’s Equality Day. 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which granted women the right to vote nationally. For the first time ever, we are bringing 6 authors together (virtually!) to talk about the history of women’s suffrage. Heidi Osselaer, author of Winning Their Place: Arizona Women in Politics, 1883-1950, as well as historians Kif Augustine-Adams, Sara Egge, Shannon Risk, Rachel Gunter, Karen Pastorello will share their perspectives and research. Together we will discuss women’s suffrage, Arizona history, and where we go from here. Bring your questions for the Q&A and conversation.

 

Be sure to read the roundtable in the new Journal of Arizona History Summer 2020 issue online at Project MUSE (https://muse.jhu.edu/journal/766). Available free August 1-31.

Free program! Suggested donation $5.
