Thanks to our partnership with Prince William County Public Libraries, the afternoon will feature an author's talk by Barbara Batson and Mari Julienne, who wrote Campaign for Women Suffrage in Virginia
About the book:
In 1920, Virginia's General Assembly refused to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution to grant women the vote. Virginia's suffragists lost. Or did they? When the thirty-sixth state ratified the amendment, women gained voting rights across the nation. Virginia suffragists were a part of that victory, although their role has been nearly forgotten. They marched in parades, rallied at the state capitol, spoke to crowds on street corners, staffed booths at fairs, lobbied legislators, picketed the White House and even went to jail. The Campaign for Woman Suffrage in Virginia reveals how women created two statewide organizations to win the right to vote. At the centenary of the movement, these remarkable women can at last be recognized for their important contributions.
LWV-PWFA will forward the list of members who have signed up to the library. After you complete the Webex registration, look for messages from Lena Berrios with further information.
