Who is deemed “fit” to vote and what makes an ideal voter? Who was enfranchised by the ratification of the 19th Amendment and who was left out? Questions of citizenship rights, immigration, domestic migration, and the “qualities” deemed acceptable of an “ideal voter” during the 19th century both informed and transformed the national debate around woman suffrage.
Join the NWHM in collaboration with the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library on November 19 for this important discussion. The “Determined to Rise”: Women’s Historical Activism for Equal Rights panel discussion series is made possible through the financial support of Ms. Jeanette Sharpe, Pivotal Ventures, and Husch Blackwell, LLP.
