Upcoming Free Online Presentation

Wednesday August 5th;  10:00 - 11:00 A.M.

Women's Suffrage: The West Led the Way

Join us as we host a presentation by Dr. Joye Kohl from the Arizona State Questers, titled Women’s Suffrage: The West Led the Way.

This year marks the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment guaranteeing and protecting women's right to vote.

Learn about the push for suffrage in the ten western

states, the Territory of Alaska and the state of Kansas which all led the nation in passing women’s suffrage by 1914. We'll explore the role Western suffragist leaders played in the national struggle of women working for the right to vote through a Constitutional Amendment. An opportunity for Q & A will follow.

Dr. Joye Kohl is a retired educator and a member of the Arizona Questers Women’s Suffrage Centennial Project steering committee and has been actively researching women’s suffrage with a special focus on the 45 years of implementation in the Western states. She is a member of the American Association of University Women, the League of Women Voters, and the West Valley Genealogical Society.

Space is limited for this presentation.
