During the 70-year fight for suffrage, women from divergent political backgrounds united under one common cause: polling equality. One hundred years have passed since women were granted the vote. But their fight–and ours–is not over. Join us for a day of workshops, panels, and presentations from national leaders and local experts as we dig into methods for making concrete, lasting change right now.

Online, via Zoom.

$30 + Eventbrite Fees | $10 Students + Evenbrite Fees. IHS Members get 20% off with code HISTORY.
