The Fight for Women’s Suffrage (10/13)

by | Oct 8, 2020

Fredie Kay, Founder and President of Suffrage100MA will give a presentation and talk about Suffrage100MA and two other important projects that Suffrage100MA is working on:

  • The Safe Elections Network (SEN)
  • The 100 Colleges Initiative.

The presentation will be followed by Q&A and then a screening of Suffrage100MA’s film: The Fight for Women’s Suffrage: Looking Back, Marching Forward

This film, created by Suffrage100MA to commemorate the centennial of the 19th Amendment being added to the U.S. Constitution, gives a versatile glimpse into the suffrage movement, from the abolitionist movement in the 19th century that led to the suffrage movement, to the ratification of the 19th Amendment 100 years ago. The movie shares the stories and sacrifices of the suffragists— especially women of color—who fought tirelessly for decades so that all of us could vote. The history in the film is told in part by: Governor Baker, Senator Warren, Congresswomen Clark & Pressley, Attorney General Healey, other elected officials, community members, and local artists. The film is about 35 minutes. 

There will be time for questions. Learn the dramatic herstory and be inspired to VOTE!
