Crack in the Glass Ceiling: Boston Women Entering Politics

WED, OCT 22, 2008

Sarah Deutsch, Dean of Social Sciences at Duke University and a scholar of gender and race in the early 20th century, explores the role of Boston’s suffragists during the turbulent era when women secured the right to vote and officially entered the world of politics. American women earned the right to vote 88 years ago, and are still working their way to the top. During an historic election season in which women have played a large role, join Deutsch reflects on the long road that got them there. This lecture is made possible by the New England Women’s Club Fund of The Boston Foundation.
