Women’s Suffrage: Moral Advancement or Politics as Usual? Digital Conference

August 19 @ 7:00 pm


Vermont Humanities Digital Channels

The suffrage movement operated under two very different principles. Elizabeth Cady Stanton saw women’s suffrage as a right that had been unfairly denied to women, while Frederick Douglass saw women’s suffrage as a means to save the country’s soul.

This presentation considers both of these visions. Would women’s participation in politics improve the moral character of the nation? Or would politics degrade women voters?
