“How Long Must Women Wait?” Women’s Suffrage in Washington DC (1848-1973) Webinar

March 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The fight for women’s suffrage has roots all across America, but many of its most important moments have taken place in Washington, DC. In addition to local activists who fought not only for women’s suffrage but for suffrage for all DC residents, women came from all over the country to Washington, DC, to campaign and lobby Congress for voting rights. Join Quinn Evans architectural historians Ruth Mills and Patti Kuhn Babin for this Women’s History Month webinar, based on a recently completed historic context study that recognizes important themes, people, and places that define the history of women’s suffrage in Washington, DC. The webinar will also provide an in-depth look at several historic sites in Washington that played an important role in the women’s suffrage movement.
