This May, WGS is hosting a Study Away program during intersession. Students will travel to upstate New York, New York City and Washington, D.C., to study the suffrage movement. You can apply for this course
In 1920, the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote in the United States. In honor of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, the class will travel to New York and Washington D.C. to retrace the suffrage movement, from its roots in the Abolitionist Movement through the Jazz Age. With an eye toward issues of race and class, we will examine the history that culminated in the Nineteenth Amendment getting added to the Constitution.
