Second Saturday: “The Price of Love: American Women, the Cable Act and Lost Citizenship”
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.
