Cairnwood Lecture – Shall Not Be Denied: American Women & The Struggle for Suffrage

NEW DATE Thursday, October 1 at 7:30pm

An illustrated talk celebrating the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote.

  • Free admission; $10 donations appreciated
  • Space is limited; reservations required

Women worked for the right to vote for over a century before the 19th amendment to the Constitution guaranteed that the right of citizens to vote would “not be denied or abridged by the United States or any State on account of sex.” This illustrated lecture will discuss the traditional story of women’s suffrage, highlighting the remarkable accomplishments and sacrifices of famous women such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Susan B. Anthony, but will also explore lesser known history, such as the fierceness of anti-suffragist activists and the importance of women of color in the pro-suffrage movement. If you are feeling festive, wear purple, yellow, or white: the colors of the suffrage movement that successfully gave women the right to vote 100 years ago.

Speaker Kendra Knight, an alumna of ANC and Bryn Athyn College, has been teaching United States history in the Academy of the New Church Girls School for the last decade. She recently earned a Masters in History concentrated on race and gender in United States history from Villanova University. She is particularly interested in developing the histories of people whose voices have been omitted from traditional accounts such as minorities and women.
