Morality. Piety. Domesticity. All words that framed both the fight for women’s right to vote and prohibition at the turn of the 20th century. Both movements go hand in hand, aiming to deeply dividing or uniting suffragists in their crusade fight for these two amendments. Join panelists Jessica Derleth, Binghamton University, Anita Morgan of IUPUI, Lori Osborne of the Frances Willard House Museum and Archive and moderator Jessica Jenkins from Minnetrista for a conversation on the intersection and complexities of these two movements.

Hosted by the National Women’s History Museum across the country, this series of lively discussions looks at the achievements and limitations of women gaining the right to vote.
