The Queer History of the Suffrage Movement

Wednesday, March 10 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm |

What role did queer suffragists play in the fight to win the vote? How did suffragists both reinforce and challenge heteronormative views of gender and sexuality? In this virtual talk, historian Wendy Rouse will share findings from her current project, “The Queer History of the Women’s Suffrage Movement.”
