“Banners Instead of Guns:” Fighting for Suffrage in Wartime
August 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Pay-What-You-Please
Discover the surprising ways the Civil War and World War I impacted the women’s suffrage movement.
The special event hosted by the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum and the National Woman’s Party, “Banners Instead of Guns” is an exploration of the impact that the Civil War, and later the First World War, had on the women’s suffrage movement.
Join Kelsey Millay and Jake Wynn at the Missing Soldiers Office on August 16 at 6:00 PM for a conversation about how each war influenced the strategies, tactics, and rhetoric used by suffragists in their own fight: the fight for the vote.
The presentation will take place on August 16 at 6:00 PM at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum. It will be a “pay-what-you-please” presentation.
Kelsey Millay is the Interpretation and Digital Media Manager for the National Woman’s Party at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument.
Jake Wynn is the Director of Interpretation at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office and the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
