Author Bridget Quinn: She Votes: How U.S. Women Won Suffrage, and What Happened Next

Monday, September 21, 2020

Author Bridget Quinn joins us to discuss her new book honoring the 100th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment.

The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1920, granting women the right to vote. Author Bridget Quinn will talk about her new book celebrating the victory and the ongoing struggle.

"She Votes: How U.S. Women Won Suffrage, and What Happened Next" is the intersectional story of the women who won suffrage, and those who have continued to raise their voices for equality ever since.

From the first female Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation to the first woman to wear pants on the Senate floor, Quinn shines a spotlight on the women who broke down barriers.
