About The Event

The organized fight for women’s suffrage began in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Convention and ended in the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution in 1920. Join us in celebration of the centennial anniversary of women's suffrage, as Catherine Adams Minicucci, a graduate of UCLA and Harvard University, describes the fight for women’s right to vote: the political and social factors in the long and courageous effort. 

Initially aligned with the abolitionist movement, women’s suffrage advocates diverged from that movement and began to openly advocate for their gender over race equality. This and other factors led to the movement stalling out after the Civil War. It was when new leadership, adopting the approach of English suffragists, protested openly that the movement gained momentum.  The new women’s suffrage leaders, aligned with the child labor and universal education push, adopted a strategy of organizing locally and electing sympathetic members to Congress. Sound political strategy, widespread women’s activism and persistence won the day.
