A different game plan for autumn weekends. You are invited to join in discussion with Notre Dame’s most engaging faculty on some of the most pressing and fascinating issues of our times.

The ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920 granted American women the right to vote. Critics almost immediately decried women’s suffrage as a failure. This talk provides new insight into whether, how, and with what impact women cast their ballots in the period immediately following suffrage.

All are welcome. Visit Saturday Scholar series for a complete listing.
