Votes for Women: The Story of the Nineteenth Amendment

This will be a five-session application based colloquium style discussion that will rely heavily on participant preparation and involvement. Registrations must be approved by Institute staff.


This conference will explore the movement for women's suffrage form early writings on rights for women through the development of the movement to and beyond the Nineteenth Amendment. Participants will analyze primary sources that impacted the colonial era, through the 19th century, and will trace the coalescence of tributaries into the raging stream of the movement. The discussion will surface the flow of the movement, and the journey of its codification into the Constitutional amendment. 

At this time, the Bill of Rights Institute is planning to host in-person programming in the fall of 2020 but we plan to closely monitor the public health conditions and state and local guidelines related to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will do our part to keep our participants and communities safe and if travel or gathering is ill-advised at the time of the program, we will explore alternative programming, and host online opportunities for professional development.

Details will be provided to participants if these changes become necessary.
