Cocktails and Conversations - Voting Rights: Then and Now

Presented by The Women's Fund of Rhode Island at Online/Virtual Space

Sep 09 2020
Cocktails and Conversations - Voting Rights: Then and Now

This panel will focus on women in the context of their historical and political environments, and how those environments led to their singular and group actions for voting rights. 1920-2020 and beyond. 

2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment which gave some women the right to vote. Voting rights have always been a struggle for many groups in our country and continue to be an issue. This panel will look at the whole picture through historical, constitutional, and activist lenses.

Moderator: Kimberly Conway Dumpson, RIC

Elisa Miller, RIC (Historian)

Diane Hassel, RWU ( Constitutional Law)

Lorén Speas, Tomaquag Museum (Native Voting Rights)
