Suffrage Speaks Series at the Alice Paul Institute

The Alice Paul Institute is delighted to present “Suffrage Speak,” a series of presentations and discussions by leading women’s history scholars designed to celebrate the upcoming centennial in 2020 of women winning the right to vote in the United States. This dynamic speakers series will engage audiences and explore the issues in both past and present women’s movements.

Speakers will draw parallels from the struggles of a century ago to current events in the U.S., and make history relevant to today’s audience. “Suffrage Speak” will highlight topics central to contemporary discourse, including the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements, and hold the important and difficult discussions necessary to bring about a balanced and realistic concept of what “equality” looks like for women and for all Americans. As the United States prepares to celebrate the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Alice Paul Institute is proud to invite audiences to join us for this important speakers series.
