The Cornell Club of Ithaca will host three educators from National Park Service sites in Seneca Falls and Washington, D.C. On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment became part of the U.S. Constitution and the right to vote in the U.S. could no longer be denied on the basis of sex. The fight for women’s suffrage was successful, but it was complex and interwoven with issues of civil and political rights for all Americans. We invite you to join us as educators from the two National Parks discuss the complicated history around suffrage and the 19th Amendment.

Zoom link details will be provided to registrants prior to the event.
