A Global History of the 19th Amendment
Did you know the passage of the 19th Amendment is inextricably tied to WWI? Or that American women’s suffrage is a global story? Join Dr. Mona Siegel, Professor of History at California State University, Sacramento, for a program that investigates the ways American women’s final push for suffrage was shaped by world historical events. Drawing from her new book, Peace on Our Terms: The Global Battle for Women’s Rights After the First World War, Siegel’s talk highlights how women's activism in Europe, Asia and the Middle East aided the final push for ratification of the 19th Amendment, and explores why African American, labor and pacifist suffragists from the United States chose to advocate for women’s rights abroad in 1919, even as the fight for suffrage was reaching a perilous climax at home.
