Additional information

Join us for a workshop with Dr. Laura Prieto, professor of History and Women's and Gender Studies at Simmons University in Boston, as we look beyond the surface of the 19th amendment that granted women the right to vote.

Although white women were enfranchised in 1920, voting rights were not as easily recognized for women of color. Laura will discuss the issue through the individual stories of women and their continuing fight to vote in the decades since 1920.
