Nearly one hundred years ago, women in the United States earned the right to vote. For decades prior to the passage of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed this right, women and men alike agitated for women’s rights, often in tandem with other social causes. This talk will explore the significance of this amendment as well as other voting acts, while also taking a longer view of women’s history from a local perspective.

Allison Horrocks is a public historian based out of Uxbridge, MA. She earned her PhD in History in 2016 from the University of Connecticut. Her primary research interests are women’s history and the history of education. Allison currently works as a Park Ranger at Lowell National Historical Park.
