The Struggle for Women’s Suffrage: The Story of One of the Biggest Civil Rights Movements in History

  • Lithgow Public Library 45 Winthrop Street Augusta, ME, 04330 United States (map)


2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, when women won the right to vote. This presentation celebrates that historic victory and the women who led the movement, but it also provides a sober reflection on the compromises that split the movement and left many voters behind--choices that continue to echo 100 years later. We’ll look at the lessons learned in the struggle for women’s suffrage and what remains undone. Presented by Ann Luther of the League of Women Voters.
