In “How Women Got the Vote,” we will discuss women’s  struggle to obtain just one simple privilege. We will set the stage by observing how their species was viewed from the time they landed in the colonies through the early 20th century; with emphases on how political and religious leaders and the U.S. Supreme Court judged their physical, intellectual and emotional abilities.

          We will discuss the women’s Seneca Falls Convention of 1848; their failed effort to obtain the vote when the 15th Amendment was passed; their attempts to vote in the 1872 Presidential election; and the special efforts of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Alice Paul and others. Then we will celebrate the 19th Amendment that was ratified in August, 1920, and follow women’s battle for equality in other areas in the decades since.

Presented by Tom Strong.
