This presentation will trace the history of the 72-year campaign for women’s right to vote in the United States, focusing on the final winning effort from 1915 to 1920 that led to the ratification of the 19th Amendment. The presenter is slated to be Dr. Dianne Bystrom, Director Emeritus of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics at Iowa State University. At Iowa State, Dr. Bystrom taught courses on women and politics and women and leadership. She has contributed to 26 books, including An Encylopedia of Women as Voters.
