The fight for woman suffrage was a long-fought battle with support from well-organized national groups. Working-class women involved in grassroots efforts and other reform movements played a significant role in the fight for the right to vote. Historians Page Harrington, Cathleen Cahill and Alison Parker will discuss these women and the roles they played.

Women's History Month programming is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Denise Gwyn Ferguson.
