1919 was a landmark year for women’s rights in the Land of Lincoln, as Illinois became the first state east of the Mississippi River to grant women the right to vote for president. Join Anne Moseley, Director of Engagement and Curator of Sangamon Experience at UIS, as she tells the story of the women’s suffrage movement in Illinois and the effort it took to secure the vote.
