After Suffrage

September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Campaign for the Equal Rights Amendment,  1920 – 2020

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, protecting the right to vote from discrimination on the basis of sex. The success of the women’s suffrage movement inspired greater calls for equality and evolved into the campaign for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. First introduced to Congress in 1923, the amendment passed the House and Senate in 1972 but has yet to be ratified by three-fourths of the state legislatures. Campaigns for the passage of the ERA continue today.

Join us for this virtual lecture on the campaign for the Equal Rights Amendment by Barbara Berenson, J.D., held via Zoom. This event is co-sponsored with the Natick Historical Society. It is FREE and open to the public.
