100 Years of (White) Women’s Suffrage: Who was Present, but Omitted from History?

(Part of the University of Rhode Island's 23rd Annual Diversity Week)

Facilitated by Meaghan Szilagyi, assistant house manager; Katherine Fernandez, programming specialist/assistant house manager; and Penny Rosenthal, director, URI Women’s Center

We must know our historical truths in order to avoid repeating our mistakes. While the United States will celebrate nearly 100 years of women’s suffrage next year, women of color continued to be disenfranchised well after the nineteenth amendment granting women the right to vote was ratified in 1920. This program, importantly, moves beyond celebration and into reflection of how the Suffrage Movement became a white women’s movement. Women of Color continued to be disenfranchised after the nineteenth amendment was passed in 1920. Please join us for the untold story of the US Women’s Suffrage Movement.
