Votes for Women in the 21st Century: An Insider Perspective

On Feb. 28, 1920, the Oklahoma State Legislature passed the 19th amendment, which finally granted women the right to vote and expanded suffrage to the full cohort of American society.

Now, on Feb. 28, 2020, the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma will welcome several female political leaders in the state to campus to discuss a century of successes in the struggle for women’s rights, the challenges they still face, the importance of voting and of women’s voices in government during “Votes for Women in the 21st Century: An Insider Perspective.”
