The struggle for women’s suffrage lasted almost a century and engaged the energies of three generations of women. Traditional histories have focused on the stories of a few iconic leaders and the national organizations they founded but there is a broad, more diverse suffrage history waiting to be told. Join feminist historian and biographer Susan Ware, author of Why They Marched: Untold Stories of the Women Who Fought for the Right to Vote, to learn how this new history shifts the frame of reference away from the national leadership to highlight the women (and occasionally the men) who made women’s suffrage happen in states and communities across the nation. The Cambridge Political Equality Association provides a window on local activism and its relation to the larger movement.
