Women’s Suffrage, the 19th Amendment, and the Duality of a Movement

Presented with the Dauphin County Bar Association

In honor of both the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment as well as Law Day, this presentation will highlight equity, equality, and justice as core values of our American Constitutional Democracy.

The CLE will begin with a discrete summary of the relevant history preceding the ratification of the 19th Amendment, specifically touching on the antebellum period, the Civil War, and the Reconstruction Amendments.  Next, the presentation will address the splintered movement to grant suffrage for African American men at the national level before achieving women’s suffrage, while also examining the further splintering of the movement that effectively sought to continue the disenfranchisement of other groups, specifically, African-American women, all against a back drop of Jim Crow.  The purpose of this examination is to unveil the fundamental tenet that voting is an act of political and social self-determination, specifically for those who lack power or are among the most vulnerable in our society.  Finally, the program will explore the modern application of the lessons learned from the splintered suffrage movements in support of universal suffrage in the United States as a function of the promotion of the rule of law.
