On Election Eve, learn how women won the right to vote

| No Comments

Thumbnail image for Kate Kelly-internet.jpgAuthor and historian Kate Kelly will discuss How Women Won the Right to Vote: 90 Years Since Passage of the 19th Amendment, on Monday, November 1, at 7 p.m., in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room.

Kelly will discuss the fight to get the right to vote, starting in 1848 through Susan B. Anthony, the well-known suffragist, urging women across the country to vote in 1872 and the several more decades it took before women received the right to vote.

Kelly has penned more than 30 nonfiction titles ranging from the bestselling title Organize Yourself! to Living Safe in an Unsafe World. She has recently returned to her love of history (she first wrote about election day history early in her career). Every election cycle, Kelly addresses audiences about the history of American presidential elections.

The program is free and open to all. For more information, please call Carl White at (203) 622-7948.
