Defy the Odds: Illinois Women and the Nineteenth Amendment

Illinois History Forum–Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum

1919 was a landmark year for women's rights in the Land of Lincoln, as Illinois became the first state east of the Mississippi River to grant women the right to vote for president. Join Anne Moseley, Director of Engagement and Curator of Sangamon Experience at UIS, as she tells the story of the women's suffrage movement in Illinois and the effort it took to secure the vote. 

As part of our on-going Illinois History Forum series, Anne will tell the story of the women's suffrage movement in Illinois and the effort it took to secure the right to vote.

This week's Facebook LIVE! program will also highlight "Defy the Odds," the special women's suffrage exhibit at the Lincoln Heritage Museum at Lincoln College.
