As America approaches the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, Preservation Maryland will host a traveling lecture series with historian Kacy Rohn which will unravel the history of the suffrage movement in Maryland and a look at the historic places where this story unfolded. This hour long program will explore the history and current preservation efforts aimed at documenting this important moment in American history.

The recently published “The Woman’s Hour” is an inspiring story of activists winning their own freedom in one of the last campaigns forged in the shadow of the Civil War, and the beginning of the great twentieth-century battles for civil rights. It is the nail-biting climax of one of the greatest political battles in American history: the ratification of the constitutional amendment that granted women the right to vote. The book is currently being adapted for the small screen through a partnership between Hillary Clinton and Steven Spielberg.
