Suffrage Series Launch Event: Lecture with Susan Ware

Saturday, November 16, 2019 at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

"When they marched" - book cover and author photo
A distinguished lecture presentation by Susan Ware, author of Why They Marched: Untold Stories of the Women Who Fought for the Right to Vote (May 2019).
A pioneer in the field of women’s history and a leading feminist biographer, Susan Ware, an Organization of American Historians (OAH) Distinguished Lecturer, is the author and editor of numerous books on twentieth-century U.S. history.  Her newest book, Why They Marched, uncovers a broader and more diverse story of suffrage, providing a fresh account of one of the most significant moments of political mobilization in American History. Feminism and women’s rights are an ongoing struggle with no clear endpoint in sight and the women’s suffrage movement is a vital part of that story.  Books will be available at this event, $20, cash or check payable to “Avon Library.”
This event is made possible by a grant from CT Humanities.  Additional sponsorship provided by the Connecticut Bar Association.
