Event to celebrate the 203rd birthday of Hoosier suffragist Zerelda Wallace as well as the centennials of the 19th Amendment and the League of Women Voters.
Dr. Anita Morgan will present “Motors and Mass Rallies: Expanding the Movement after 1909” and explore Hoosier activists’ efforts to publicize women’s right to vote with automobile tours, street meetings and large demonstrations and their understanding that adding new groups of marginalized people (like African-American men and women) and more public events could convince reluctant politicians to vote in favor of women’s suffrage.
Dr. Morgan is an IUPUI Senior Lecturer in History, a speaker for the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial and author of “We Must Be Fearless,” a forthcoming book about Indiana women’s suffrage.
