Program Description


Ridgefield Historical Society and Ridgefield Library present Votes for Women: The Long and Winding Road - via live Zoom webinar

Votes for Women: The Long and Winding Road is a four-week, mini-course that will focus on the women of Seneca Falls, NY, and the first Women’s Rights Convention and the work of Ridgefield’s own Alice Paul, her strategic march on Washington, DC, and lobbying in front of the White House to get the Women’s Vote. The course will also feature Ridgefield residents who knew Alice, and other area suffragettes such as Elsie Hill, Mary Louisa Olcott, and Laura Curie Allee Shields. The course will also be linked to women’s issues of today and the status of the Equal Rights Amendment.
