Encounters | From Suffrage to Election: Women Making Their Voices Heard
Oct 15 @ 6:00 pm

After the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, five women were elected to Connecticut’s General Assembly that year. The number of women serving in elected office has risen steadily, but why is the number of elected women still low? How does gender balance impact legislative decisions? A virtual discussion centered on these questions will raise important points to consider as new generations of women seek to enter political life. Advance registration required via cga.ct.gov/osh/.

 

Hosted by the Old State House. Co-sponsored with the Hartford History Center at the Hartford Public Library, The Amistad Center for Art & Culture, and the University of Connecticut’s Humanities Institute.
