How did the women of CT work for – or against – the right to vote? In this program, we’ll look at photos, letters and pamphlets from the Connecticut Historical Society collection to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. You’ll learn about suffragists like Katharine Houghton Hepburn, Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some CT women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote (what was up with them?). Presented by the Connecticut Historical Society Museum and Library.
