About this course:

On August 26, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was adopted, granting women the right to vote. This course offers a brief introduction to three generations of suffragists and the bonds which sustained them, despite disagreements and schisms within the movement. Among the most notable women were Sarah and Angelina Grimké, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Lucy Stone, Carrie Chapman Catt, Alice Paul, Lucy Burns, and Ida Wells-Barnett. Supported by thousands of lesser known women, they persisted for seven decades, clinging to Anthony’s firm belief that “failure is impossible.”
