Lunch & Learn: The Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage in East Tennessee

Hannah Rexrode, Education & Volunteer Programs Manager at the East Tennessee Historical Society, discusses the emergence of support for the Congressional Union, which later became the National Woman’s Party, in East Tennessee. Although many southern suffragists publicly condemned the more militant tactics employed by the party, in 1916 a group of Tennesseans formed a chapter of the Congressional Union made up almost entirely of East Tennessee women. This presentation looks closely at East Tennessee suffragists as well as the changing dynamics of the Woman Suffrage Movement in the decade leading up to the ratification of the 19th amendment.

Guests will be able to ask questions during the discussion that will be answered towards the end of the talk, should time allow.
