Program Description

Event Details

During this history talk, Dr. Aimee Loiselle, a professor at Central Connecticut State University, will discuss how women from different backgrounds and regions have pursued equity by different means. Even the suffrage movement and passage of the 19th Amendment, granting women the federal right to vote in 1920, emerged from many tactics heavily shaped by race, class, and geography. Its passage fueled more efforts by women, both to use the vote and to highlight its inadequacy for addressing problems like unfair work conditions and poverty.
