Zoom Presentation: Forgotten Heroes: Women's Right to Vote
"Forgotten Heroes – Women and Their Fight for the Right to Vote" takes the audience on the long 72- year journey for women’s suffrage, beginning at the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, New York and culminating with the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. The program will highlight some of the determined and skillful women who courageously fought to change not only the laws, but cultural and social norms. Pennsylvania's suffrage campaign to amend the state constitution, named the "Pittsburgh Plan" will also be covered. Join us on Zoom for this presentation and discussion.
The program was developed as part of the League of Women Voters of Bucks County's celebration in 2020 of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the founding of the League of Women Voters. It is presented by members of the LWVBC’s Speakers’ Bureau.
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization, whose purpose is to promote active and informed participation of citizens in government. Its members reach out to the public with information and assistance on registering to vote, candidate information and forums to help voters make informed choices, and studied and developed positions on important issues.
