How were women’s rights impacted once they gained access to the ballot in 1920? Join author, Barbara Berenson, for a talk that will explore how women have fared politically and legally over the past century. Consider how women activists have built alliances, review some of the key developments over the past century including a discussion of the campaign for the Equal Rights Amendment, and discuss the historical connections between women who opposed suffrage and those who oppose women’s rights today.

The event is free free and open to the public.
