American women proselytized and protested for more than 70 years to finally win the right to vote. And yet, the victory wasn't complete with the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. In this session, we'll explore the rights of women from the founding of America's colonies to the turmoil of the suffrage era in the 20th century and beyond. We'll also delve into various laws that have affected the rights of your female ancestors.

Saturday, April 11, 2020
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
SGS Library, 6200 Sand Point Way NE, Seattle, Washington
 
A wide range of social movements arose across the U.S. from 1890 - 1920, a period known as the Progressive Era. Progressive reformers sought to end political corruption, improve the lives of individuals and increase government intervention to protect citizens. How did the Progressive Era impact women in their communities, including your ancestors?
 
The women's suffrage movement was part of this wave of Progressive Era reforms culminating in the passage of the 19th Amendment on August 18th, 1920. And prominent suffragettes led progressive-era causes that impacted women. Discover the fascinating lives and accomplishments of Jane Addams, Nellie Bly and Ida B. Wells-Barnett as well as local leaders Emma Smith DeVoe, Abigail Scott Duniway, Alice Lord and others.
