"Motors and Mass Rallies: Expanding the Movement after 1909" presented by Dr. Anita Morgan
Please join us for this virtual speaking presentation and discussion with Dr. Anita Morgan from the Indiana Women's Suffrage Centennial (IWSC). She is a Senior Lecturer of History at IUPUI and has a passion and vast knowledge of the Women's Suffrage Movement, women's right to vote, and more. She is also the author of the new book We Must Be Fearless: The Women's Suffrage Movement in Indiana.
In this presentation, she will address the question of how the addition of technology and new women's groups contributed to the suffrage movement's growth after 1909. With the creation of the Women's Franchise League and the Equal Suffrage Association, women made a stand for change. With automobile tours, mass rallies, and bringing in new suffragists such as African American men and women, women made history with the most significant event of the twentieth-century.
