Winning Women’s Suffrage
As the United States prepared to enter World War I, another battle persisted on the home front--winning the vote for women. What happened when young women at Goucher College protested outside the White House? And why did Maryland refused to ratify the 19th amendment? Goucher alumna Hannah Spiegelman takes us behind the scenes of an ongoing exhibit at Goucher about the picket. You can see pictures of the exhibit here. And writer Elaine Weiss, whose book about suffrage is to be published by Viking Press next spring, explains the tremendous obstacles impeding ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920.
