In preparation for Worcester Historical Museum’s upcoming exhibition, PRETTY POWERFUL: 100 Years of Voting & Style, and in celebration of the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote through the changing roles of women and fashion, WHM is hosting a PRETTY POWERFUL series of VIRTUAL programs.

Despite what popular histories might tell us, the road to the 19th Amendment in the US was neither straight nor smooth. Nor was it the triumph of a few especially strong leaders. In this talk, Holy Cross History Professor Stephanie Yuhl (Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies; Peace and Conflict Studies) will explore the wide array of diverse women who, despite internal and external tensions, created a powerful movement for women’s full citizenship and personhood, symbolized in the right to vote.

Presented in partnership with the League of Women Voters of Worcester Area
