VIDEO, PANEL: “Women and the Vote: the 19th Amendment, Power, Media, and the Making of a Movement”

US National Archives, "Rightfully Hers" Exhibition Program, May 16, 2019

Era: Post-Suffrage Era | Media: Panel Discussion, Video

From the US National Archives promotion for the panel, presented by the 2020 Women’s Vote Centennial Initiative and the National Women’s History Project:

“What methods did suffragists use to communicate their message, and how did public representations of women shape the battle for the 19th Amendment? Lisa Desjardins, a correspondent for PBS NewsHour, led a discussion [May 16, 2019] with panelists Rebecca Boggs Roberts, author of Suffragists in Washington, DC; Elizabeth Griffith, author of In Her Own Right; and Linda Lumsden, professor of journalism, University of Arizona, about the unparalleled communications machine of the suffrage movement and how that struggle in the early 1900s continues to shape the women’s movement today.” The panel was presented as part of the Archive’s exhibition, “Rightfully Hers,” which you can read more about here.
