Women’s Right to Vote with a Minneapolis Perspective

August 24 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In 1919, the Minnesota Legislature recognized women’s right to vote in presidential elections. And in 1920, after the U.S. Legislature passed the 19th Amendment and two-thirds of the states ratified the amendment, women gained the right to vote. This right to vote took decades of discussion, protest, and persuasion. Historian Linda Lounsbury will examine the Women’s Suffrage Movement, the Women’s Right to Vote focusing on the local scene, and leaders including Linden Hills’ Clara Ueland.
