MORE THAN SENECA FALLS: THE SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT IN NEW ENGLAND with Dr. Heather Munro Prescott

May 3, 2:00 pm3:00 pm

$10 – $15
Dr. Heather Munro Prescott
In the Vanderbilt Education Center Barn
Many histories of women’s suffrage use the 1848 convention in Seneca Falls, New York, as a starting point for the movement, but neglect activism in other regions of the United States. In this afternoon lecture, Dr. Heather Munro Prescott will examine the New England women’s suffrage movement with a focus on critical activism on the state and local levels, exploring how suffragists from the region helped build the cause into a national movement. Heather Munro Prescott is professor of history at Central Connecticut State University, specializing in U.S. women’s history, 20th-century history and the history of medicine and public health.
Members: $10; Non-Members: $15
