The Woman’s Hour: 100 Years & Counting…
A discussion on the journey to women’s suffrage and where we have yet to go.
Tuesday, August 18, 2020
On August 18, 1920, Tennessee became the 36th and final state necessary to ratify the 19th Amendment. After a long fought battle, the United States Constitution prohibited states and the federal government from denying citizens the right to vote because of sex. However, the journey to women’s suffrage did not end in 1920. Nor has it ended in 2020. Acknowledging that not all women have had the same experience, the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall has assembled an expert and eclectic panel to explore the continuing passage to full enfranchisement.
We invite you to join us for a virtual panel discussion with moderator Jessie Ramey and panelists, Jessica Benham, Dr. Dana Brown, Monica Ruiz-Caraballo, and Ciora Thomas as we explore the journey to women’s suffrage and where we have yet to go.
This program is made possible with support from our Women’s Hour sponsors with special thanks to Amanda Neatrour.
