American women earned the right to vote in presidential elections one hundred years ago.

How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the women’s suffrage amendment? Who was left out when women got the right to vote?
Using historic photos and documents, Liz Tentarelli will discuss these questions and more, guiding us through this historic journey of Women's Rights.
