Sacramento Suffrage: The Fight for Voting Rights i...

Presented by Sacramento Public Library at Online/Virtual Space

Archivist Amanda DeWilde will be sharing the extraordinary stories of the Sacramento women and men who fought a decades-long battle for equal voting rights, culminating in the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment 100 years ago. She’ll be talking about how local clubs used creative approaches to change perceptions of women as voters, fighting against liquor interests and deeply entrenched myths about women and their place in politics.
