Too often, the story of women’s suffrage unfolds in a vacuum, seemingly unconnected from the general contours of American history. This concluding session looks back from the present, asking experts working in a variety of disciplines and organizations to briefly unfold, TED-talk style, a single “big idea” that captures the significance of the 19th Amendment for voting rights, citizenship, and democracy today.
