The centennial of the 19th Amendment provides an opportune moment to ask: how did gaining the constitutional right to vote affect women's political engagement in and beyond electoral office? Join Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow Anna Danziger Halperin in conversation with authors Stacie Taranto of Ramapo College of New Jersey and Leandra Zarnow of the University of Houston, as they discuss their new book, Suffrage at 100: Women in American Politics since 1920, a wide-ranging new edited collection that considers women in politics over the past century. 

Lead support for the Center for Women's History programs provided by Joyce B. Cowin, Diane and Adam E. Max, Jean Margo Reid, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
