In conjunction with the ABA’s 19th Amendment traveling museum exhibit’s arrival in Moscow, Idaho, the University of Idaho is hosting a virtual panel, featuring scholars on the 19th Amendment and contemporary issues in voting and women’s equality.
The featured speakers are:
- Julie Suk, City University of New York (CUNY) Dean for Master’s Programs and author of the recently published We the Women: The Unstoppable Mothers of the Equal Rights Amendment
- Cherie Buckner-Webb, recently retired Idaho State Senator from district 19
- Sue Ripley, President of the League of Women Voters of Idaho
- Katherine Aiken, University of Idaho professor emeritus of history specializing in social and cultural history, women and labor.
The panel will discuss the 100th Anniversary of women’s suffrage, the legal history of that battle, and the 19th Amendment’s legacy for equal rights beyond voting, including the status of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and more. It will be a very timely topic just weeks before the 2020 presidential election.
