Votes for Women--a History of the Suffrage Movement. Sponsored by League of Women Voters NH--PeterboroPlus unit. Free and open to the public.

Join LWVNH members for this powerpoint presentation and talk about the long road to woman suffrage.

The campaign for women's right to vote was a long one, from the 1848 Women's Rights Convention to ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920. Who were key players? What were the main issues and obstacles? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women's suffrage amendment? What made did a young legislator in Tennessee cast the deciding vote for ratification?

Using historic photos in a powerpoint presentation, Liz Tentarelli will guide us on the journey. Liz is president of the League of Women Voters New Hampshire, a non-partisan organization also celebrating its centennial in 2020 as the direct descendant of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.

More details: Marilyn Artus is traveling the path of ratification through the capital cities of the 36 states that ratified the 19th Amendment. Marilyn is collaborating with a female artist and performer in all 36 states starting in June 2019 and ending in August 2020. Each artist has created a stripe that will be stitched into the flag onsite in their capital city with Marilyn. They will be accompanied by a local performer (poets, musicians, historians, etc.).
