Battle for the Ballot: Women & the Vote


Saturday June 13


3:00 PM  –  4:30 PM

A hundred years ago, the hard-fought 19th Amendment granted some women the right to vote. Join moderator Dr. Shirley Yee for an online panel exploring the complex history behind the fight for suffrage. Learn about the past and present struggles surrounding voting including racial discrimination and barriers created by lack of access to citizenship. Presented in collaboration with the Leagues of Women Voters of Washington and of Seattle-King County.

Generous support provided by Washington State Historical Society and Washington State Women's Commission's Votes for Women Centennial Grant

Participation is open to the first 500 registrants. Information on how to participate will be provided via email following registration, and on the day of the webinar. Real-time, automated captioning is available during the webinar.
