Morality. Piety. Domesticity. These are all words that framed both the fight for women’s right to vote and prohibition at the turn of the 20th century. Both movements go hand in hand, aiming to deeply divide or unite suffragists in their crusade to fight for these two amendments. Join panelists Jessica Derleth of Binghamton University, Anita Morgan of IUPUI, Lori Osborne of the Frances Willard House Museum and Archive, and moderator Jessica Jenkins from Minnetrista for a conversation on the intersection and complexities of these two movements.
Determined to Rise examines the momentous milestones in women’s activism leading up to the passage of the 19th amendment in 1920. Hosted by the National Women’s History Museum across the country, this series of lively discussions looks at the achievements and limitations of women gaining the right to vote.
