Women’s Suffrage and the Vote: Funding Feminism
March 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In celebration of Women’s History Month and leading up to the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 2020, we are presenting programs honoring women’s suffrage history. Today’s panel discussion examines the role and sources of money in the suffrage fight—both in support of and in opposition to the suffrage amendment—as well as the role of money for elected women in contemporary political life. Distinguished panelists include Page Harrington, former Executive Director, National Woman’s Party and Belmont-Paul National Monument; Joan Johnson, author ofFunding Feminism: Monied Women, Philanthropy and the Women’s Movement, 1870–1967; A’Lelia Bundles, author & journalist; and Sarah Bryner, Research Director, Center for Responsive Politics. A book signing will follow the program.
