Uncovering the Hidden History of Woman Suffrage

Presented by Dr. Sara Egge,
with a special live performance by the
Woman’s Suffrage Centennial Chorus

Wednesday, Sept. 19, Noon – 2 p.m.

Kentucky Gov. Edwin Morrow signs the 19th Amendment in Frankfort, Jan. 6, 1920. From the collections of the Kentucky Historical Society.

We’re serving up delicious food, beautiful music and an intriguing topic at this month’s Food for Thought, when Dr. Sara Egge joins us to talk about the hidden history of woman suffrage. We will also enjoy a special live performance by the Woman’s Suffrage Centennial Chorus.

The people who worked to secure women the right to vote often walked a tightrope of political strategy to deradicalize their cause and build a diverse network of supporters. Dr. Egge will compare the suffrage movement in the Midwest and South to uncover the hidden work of suffragists.

Dr. Egge is an associate professor of history at Centre College in Danville and author of “Woman Suffrage and Citizenship in the Midwest, 1870-1920” (University of Iowa Press, 2018).
