Location: Valley Forge, Pennsylvania

As the adoption of the 19th Amendment approaches its 100th anniversary in 1920, this program provides participants with an in-depth look at the events surrounding this achievement. Well-known suffragist Susan B. Anthony once said, “The best protection any woman can have … is courage.” The courage women faced in organizing and accomplishing their rights to vote during the eight-decade-long suffrage movement will be explored, including the triumphs of influential females such as Anthony, Alice Paul, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

     

Program features include:

  • Identifying the struggles women overcame to gain the right to vote, earn better wages and access education
  • Exploring the 19th century movement for women’s suffrage through events that happened in Seneca Falls, New York, in the late 1840s
  • Examining the impact of the amendment’s passage on the American political system
  • Understanding the implications that the 19th Amendment has on today’s society
