Saturday, November 9, 2019 - 10:30am to 12:00pm
JOIN us on November 9 at Saratoga Library, from 10:30 to 12:30 for a lively discussion of the roots of the women’s suffrage movement and its future. As a NYT book review author noted, the "fights for women's rights and civil rights have never been separate stories". We are celebrating California’s ratification of the 19th Amendment, and acknowledging the long road to universal suffrage, which continues.
