Book Talk Description

Interpreting the Legacy of Women’s Suffrage is an invaluable guide for those who wish to expand the women’s suffrage narrative to include the full breadth of the movement, including the pervasive bias and racism. Practical examples and resources help readers work within their community to identify voices missing from their local narrative. It also provides guidance for convening conversations that allow for a better understanding of prominent women's history figures without defaulting to binary labels that divide them into categories of either “good” or “bad” people. Page Harrington, former executive director of the National Woman’s Party at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument will share resources from her new AASLH book Interpreting the Legacy of Women’s Suffrage at Museums and Historic Sites.

Learning Outcomes

  • How to expand the suffrage narrative to include the full breadth of voting rights for all women
  • How to identify and correct gaps in existing interpretation methods and materials
  • How to pivot from the all-to-common “she was a product of her time” to acknowledge systemic racism and organizational bias
  • How to garner support from your community, trustees, and colleagues to support reinterpretation efforts around women’s history
