Women’s Suffrage in the U.S.

A 20/20 Perspective

April 2, 2020 - June 25, 2020 | 6:30pm - 8:00pm | West Paris Public Library

A Let's Talk About It pilot series

In this series, participants will explore the multiple, simultaneous, and conflicting stories of those who fought for – and against – women’s right to vote. Taken together, the books and contextual supplements in this series make clear that suffrage activism had no singular approach, bringing to light the important battles within the movement that fundamentally shaped its long and complicated history. The series ends with a consideration of the legacy of suffrage in the ongoing fight for all women’s full political participation in the U.S. today.

Dates: April 2, April 23, May 14, June 4, and June 25, 2020


Let’s Talk About It provides public libraries with free, scholar-led book discussions. Its many series enable libraries to bring community members together in conversation around a range of compelling themes that reflect community interests.
