Ohio’s Role in Woman Suffrage: Three Reasons to Celebrate the 2020 Women’s Vote Centennial

May 5, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

In this talk, Katherine Durack will share information about the crucial yet forgotten role Ohio played in the fight for woman suffrage. ​For instance, did you know…
  • That the woman’s rights movement in the United States has deep roots in abolition and connections to Cincinnati?
  • If it hadn’t been for an 1850 Ohio woman’s rights conference, the territory of Wyoming might not have become the first place in the United States to extend equal suffrage to women (in 1869)? Cincinnati was the site of a National Woman Suffrage Conference in 1855, and the conference was opened by an internationally regarded speaker and immigrant, a Polish woman whose father was a Rabbi? Without Ohio, Tennessee might not have become the final state to ratify the 19th amendment, making equal suffrage the law of the land?
