2019 Series in Partnership with the League of Women Voters of Orange County
This talk focuses on the broader quest for female suffrage, beginning with Seneca Falls in 1848 and culminating in the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. In doing so, it considers the sacrifices and strategies of the activists in addition to their faults as they strove to achieve women’s right to vote.
Our 2019 series is presented in partnership with the League of Women Voters of Orange County, Florida, celebrating its 80th anniversary this year. This series honors the late Orlando journalist and freedom-of-information advocate Joseph L. Brechner. All programs take place from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Chapin Gallery on the fourth floor of the Orange County Regional History Center and are free.
