The Fight for Women’s Suffrage in Connecticut
Virtual Program, Registration Required.
Date: March 9th, 2021 | 7:00 – 8:00 pm
How did the women of Connecticut work for – or against – the right to vote?
Natalie Belanger looks at photos, letters, and pamphlets from Connecticut Historical Society’s collection to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. You’ll learn about suffragists like Katharine Houghton Hepburn, Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some Connecticut women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote.
Natalie Belanger is the Adult Programs Manager at the Connecticut Historical Society. She holds a B.A. in history from Smith College and an M.A. in women’s history from the University of Maryland. She has worked in museum education for most of her career, and also teaches history courses at Manchester Community College and other area colleges.
