Kentucky Women's Suffrage

Dr. Randolph Hollingsworth, assistant provost at the University of Kentucky and historian, will present a program titled "Toward Equality: A History of Kentucky Women and Voting Rights." The talk will focus on the history of Kentucky women's role in building the momentum for the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. The families of Lexington and Fayette County--black and white--raised several generations of activists who pushed for women's rights throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Intriguing characters, scandals and dissenting voices--all provide a view of Kentucky history rarely discussed.
