Women's Suffrage -- The Right to Vote: Past, Present, Future

VIRTUAL PROGRAM WILL BE HELD ON ZOOM. 

PLEASE PREREGISTER and we will send you the Zoom link the day of the program.

The Right to Vote: Past, Present, Future is a series of four events, each starting with a presentation by a panel of speakers, followed by group discussion. 

The first event in the series will engage with the women’s suffrage movement, from 1848-1920. We'll explore aspects of the history of the movement that led to the 19th amendment, such as alliances across race and class, Northampton suffragists, and attitudes toward immigrants.

Four speakers will present historical context and guide discussion. The presenters are:

Kathleen Banks Nutter, PhD, independent scholar, teacher and author in Women's History

Stephen Kenney, PhD, director of the Commonwealth Museum

Fredie Kay, founder of Suffrage100MA

Elizabeth Sharpe, PhD, Co-Executive Director of Historic Northampton

This program is funded in part by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
