Community Discussion Series
The Vote, Equity & Reform:
The (Unfinished) Legacy of the Women’s Suffrage Movement:

This year is the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment which made it illegal to prevent a woman from voting based on her sex. But in the last 100 years, what progress has been made on the issues promoted by suffragists? This year’s community discussion series in partnership with the Providence League of Women Voters , will address the issues suffragists fought for. The suffragists’ activist legacy is still relevant for America today. The work isn’t done – we’re still at!

Mondays, March 16, 23, & 30
6:30 p.m. reception, 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. discussion
Free, registration encouraged
