A Global History of the 19th Amendment

Webinar originally recorded July 22, 2020.

Investigate the ways American women’s final push for suffrage was shaped by world historical events with this webinar by Dr. Mona Siegel. Drawing from her new book, Peace on Our Terms: The Global Battle for Women’s Rights After the First World War, Siegel highlights how women's activism in Europe, Asia and the Middle East aided the 19th Amendment’s ratification and explores why African-American, labor, and pacifist suffragists from the United States advocated for women’s rights abroad in 1919, even as the fight for suffrage was reaching a perilous climax at home.
