Free Webinar – Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote; May 20, 2-3 ET

Register now for this webinar!

Official program woman suffrage procession. Washington, D. C. March 3, 1913.

The exhibition “Shall Not Be Denied” tells the story of the largest reform movement in American history with documents, photographs and scrapbooks from a diverse group of women who changed political history 100 years ago. Many suffragists donated their personal collections to the national library so that their stories would be remembered. The exhibition is part of the national commemoration of the centennial of the 19th Amendment in 2019 and 2020.

Manuscript Division Chief Janice Ruth and historian Elizabeth Novara describe the creation of the Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote exhibition and highlight online primary sources related to that topic. Ms. Novara will also demonstrate By the People, a crowdsourced transcription project, to encourage teachers to use with their students. Take a look at the exhibition here.

Educators participating in the live webinar for this session may request a certificate for one hour of professional development.

    I think that this topic is very interesting. People needs to learn about the history of women`s vote.

    I am a researcher of the African Diaspora, with a great interest in this topic. I was formerly a faculty member at SUNY-Albany, Morgan State University, and Howard University in Hispanic literature, and currently am investigating race, ethnic and gender equality across differing social, historical and geographical contexts.
