|Dr. Mandy L. Cooper|
For the amendment’s 100th anniversary, UNC-Greensboro lecturer Dr. Mandy L. Cooper will re-examine the fight for women’s suffrage in a live, interactive virtual talk, “Votes for Women: The Nineteenth Amendment at 100,” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 23.
Log in at www.randolphlibrary.org/events/suffrage.html about 10 minutes before the scheduled time, or call in at 1-517-317-3122. For assistance, call 336-318-6808.
Although Cooper places the amendment at the center of a long and continued fight for suffrage, she also notes that some women in the U.S. already had the right to vote — and others would continue fighting for it for decades.
Cooper is a Lecturer of Women’s and Gender History at UNCG. She earned her Ph.D. in history from Duke University.
She is currently at work on a book project, Bonds of Affection: Business & Politics in the National Family, which explores the relationship between emotional family bonds & the development of the U.S. economy & governing institutions.
