In observation of Women’s History Month and to honor the movement that culminated in national suffrage, the LWVSC is hosting a discussion of the book, Remember the Ladies: Celebrating those who fought for Freedom at the Ballot Box by Angela P. Dodson. Join the discussion!
Marge LaFond, Librarian and League member, will lead the discussion, covering the milestones of that hard-won struggle and reflecting on women's impact on politics. From the birth of our nation to the recent crushing defeat of the first female presidential candidate, this book highlights women's impact on United States politics and government.
Relevant to today's political environment, Remember the Ladies does not extract women's suffrage from the inseparable concurrent historic endeavors for emancipation, immigration, and temperance. Its robust research documents the intersectionality of women's struggle for the vote in its true context with other progressive efforts.
