California Women and Politics

from the Gold Rush to the Great Depression
Event detail
 In observance of Women's History Month, contributors Robert Cherny, Cameron Binkley, Susan Englander, Mark Hopkins and Mary Ann Irwin discuss their book, California Women and Politics: From the Gold Rush to the Great Depression.  Across the state, women had been deeply involved in politics long before they won the right to vote in 1911, and they remained intensely active thereafter.  The wide array of women's public activism from the 1850s to 1929 – including benevolent associations, women's clubs, and the suffrage and reform movements – will be presented.  A multiplicity of women's voices – white middle-class women, working-class women, and women of color – demanded recognition for a variety of causes.

舊金山市立圖書館為慶祝婦女歷史月, 舉辦了「她的故事」活動,以紀念和確認女性的貢獻以及今日女性的獨特體驗。
