Ballot Battle: Women’s Suffrage Virtual Program


 

100 years ago, women fought for and secured the right to vote with the enactment of the 19th Amendment in 1920. Who were the players working for and against women’s suffrage in Virginia? What strategies did they use to persuade? During this virtual program, students will consider these questions as they analyze primary source documents related to the pro and anti-suffrage movements in Virginia.
