It took 72 years from the first demand for the vote in the 1848 Declaration of Sentiments at Seneca Falls, New York until the 19th amendment was ratified in August 1920. This slide lecture looks at the origins of the suffrage movement in the abolition movement and the experience and activities of women who devoted their energy and lives to the struggle for the vote. Professor Emerita of History at Dominican University of California, Professor Dougherty has taught European history and women’s history for 35 years.
