Women Suffrage: Their Rights, Roles, and Limitations

Women Suffrage: Their Rights, Roles, and Limitations

Handout for 06 July 2024 Meeting with Michael Strauss

Life for early American woman was often burdened with setbacks. Limited by society without voting rights, limited educational opportunities, and virtually no legal identity, woman sought to be equals in society. This lecture focuses on the history of woman and the Suffrage Movement from the colonial times to the early twentieth century. Numerous genealogical records are
examined in this lecture from the Anti-Slavery movement, to the Temperance Movement, military service, and later as woman gained the right to vote.
