Votes for Women: A History of the Suffrage Movement

  • Moultonborough Public Library 4 Holland Street Moultonborough, NH 03254 United States (map)

The campaign for women’s right to vote was a long one, from the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention to ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. Who were the key players? What issues and obstacles did they face? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women’s suffrage amendment? Using historic photos in a powerpoint presentation, Liz Tentarelli will guide us on the journey. Liz is president of the League of Women Voters NH, a non-partisan organization that is the direct descendant of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.

Registration: None. Free and open to the public.
