Lecture: The Long Road to Women's Suffrage in Kansas
LIVE Virtual Free Lecture!
Kansas was historically a leader in women’s rights, being just the eighth state to grant female suffrage. Yet the campaign for voting rights in Kansas required more than half a century of determined effort, as women suffered discouraging setbacks in three different statewide initiatives. How did they ultimately persuade an all-male electorate to grant them their rights? What did their long ordeal teach them about perseverance and politics? This presentation will explore the courageous individuals who took on the powerful interests opposed to electoral reform and discover other firsts that Kansas women achieved on the road to full suffrage.
Presented by Diane Eickhoff. Diane is a historian and the author of Clarina Nichols: Frontier Crusader for Women’s Rights.
