The Power of Movements: The Struggle to Pass the Nineteenth Amendment and Beyond
Women have had the right to vote in the United States for one hundred years, but how did women secure this right? People express their power by voicing their opinions about government. People of like minds can get together to create movements that impact what we think and how we live, ultimately transforming our society.

In this third webinar in the Power to the People series from the Center for Civic Education, Lisa Tetrault, associate professor of history at Carnegie Mellon University, explains the power of movements, focusing particularly on struggle to pass the Nineteenth Amendment, which recognized the right of women to vote. This year is the one hundredth anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment.

This webinar is designed especially for teachers of civics, government, and U.S. history who want to better understand the women's suffrage movement, but everyone is welcome to attend.

The Power to the People webinar series is sponsored by the Center for Civic Education, Kansas State University, and the Indiana Bar Foundation
