So We Won the Vote, Then What? (with Christine Brookes)

Women across the state, nation, and world fought for the right to vote. We will discuss the fight and the victory as well as the fact that enfranchisement did not change everything women wanted. Learn about the social, economic, and political climate of the 1920s and 1930s while we explore how women’s everyday lives, clothing, and careers were impacted (or not impacted) by the ratification of the 19th Amendment.

Christine Brookes is the Outreach Coordinator at Lake Geneva's Black Point Estate and Gardens, one of Wisconsin's twelve Historic Sites.
