Forgotten Heroes: Women and the Fight for the Right to Vote

Forgotten Heroes takes the audience on the long 72- year fight for women’s suffrage, beginning at the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, NY, and culminating with the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. The program will highlight some of the determined and skillful women who courageously fought to change not only the laws, but cultural and social norms. Pennsylvania’s suffrage campaign to amend the state constitution, named the “Pittsburgh Plan,” will also be covered. This presentation was developed as part of the League of Women Voters of Bucks County’s celebration in 2020 of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the founding of the League of Women Voters.
