Saturday Scholar Lecture: “Was Women's Suffrage a Failure?”


Location: Annenberg Auditorium, Snite Museum of Art (View on map )

You are invited to join in discussion with Notre Dame’s most engaging faculty on some of the most pressing and fascinating issues of our times.

The final Saturday Scholar lecture of the year will be presented by Christina Wolbrecht, Director of the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy, C. Robert and Margaret Hanley Family Director of the Notre Dame Washington Program, and Professor of Political Science 

The ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 granted American women the right to vote. Critics almost immediately decried women’s suffrage as a failure. This talk provides new insight into whether, how, and with what impact women cast their ballots in the period immediately following suffrage.

All are welcome. Thrive! members may recall Wolbrecht from her lunch-and-learn discussion last year on gender and the 2016 elections.
