At Home

Virtual Zoom

Explore the struggle from 1848 -- when the first call for women's votes was issued at Seneca Falls -- to 1920 when the 19th amendment gave all American women the vote.

It took 72 years for American women to win the right to vote.  Leslie Goddard returns to explore the long struggle from 1848 – when the first call was issued at Seneca Falls – to 1920, when women finally gained suffrage. In the ensuing years, women worked tirelessly, giving speeches, writing letters and petitions, gathering signatures by the thousands, and persevering in the face of strident opposition. Some were jailed and even beaten.
