The Great Unfinished Fight: A Conversation on the History and Legacy of the 19th Amendment

August 2020 marks the centennial anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment, which granted women the right to vote. The passage marked the largest expansion of democracy in the history of our country—but true equality remained elusive, particularly for women of color. This special commemorative program featured a conversation between the Hon. M. Margaret McKeown, Chair of the ABA’s Commission on the 19th Amendment, and Elaine Weiss, author of The Woman’s Hour: The Great Fight to Win the Vote. Learn the gripping story of how women won the right to vote and opened the door to future battles for civil rights.
