Topic: Women’s Suffrage Speaker: Kathy Dunn
Kathy is a retired elementary school teacher who holds a minor in history. A love of history encouraged her to spend countless hours researching and documenting historical subjects. One topic of focus for her is Women’s Suffrage.
“The women’s suffrage movement was a decades-long fight to win the right to vote for women in the United States. It took activists and reformers nearly 100 years to win that right, and the campaign was not easy: Disagreements over strategy threatened to cripple the movement more than once. But on August 18, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the Constitution was finally ratified, enfranchising all American women and declaring for the first time that they, like men, deserve all the rights and responsibilities of citizenship.” (from History.com)
