“Hiding Under Eastern Petticoats? The Emerging Women’s Suffrage Movement in California”
For women demanding the vote after the Civil War, California was a hot-bed of activity, especially with the rival National and American Woman Suffrage Associations battling for alliances in the Golden State.
Join Donna Schuele (UCLA, Cal State LA) as she explores California’s suffrage movement in the 1870s and the ways in which the California movement was driven—and riven—by circumstances both local and national.
