From Seneca Falls to the 19th Amendment: Songs of the American Woman Suffrage Movement
Presented by Rick Spencer and Dawn Indermuehle
The struggle for woman suffrage was an important and hard-fought step toward gender equality. Music was one of the significant tools used in the crusade for a woman’s right to vote. Songs were composed to advance (and to oppose) the agenda that culminated in the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. “From Seneca Falls to the 19th Amendment: Songs of the American Woman Suffrage Movement” is a program that presents some of the most engaging and interesting songs of the movement, with historical commentary, in commemoration of the centennial of a woman’s right to vote in America.
Come celebrate Women’s History Month with us! This program is free of charge and open to all.
