LUNCH WITH BOOKS: West Virginia & the 19th Amendment - 100 years

March 03, 2020
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Calendar Event Photo

March is Women’s History Month and Dr. Katharine Antolini, professor of history and gender studies at West Virginia Wesleyan College, will help us observe the 100th anniversary of Congress passing the 19th Amendment recognizing, at long last, the right of women to vote. The amendment was ratified by the state of West Virginia on March 10, 1920 and ratified nationally on August 18 of the same year. Professor Antolini will examine the arguments against women’s suffrage that defeated the state referendum in 1916 and almost prevented its passage in West Virginia four years later.
