Research Roundtable | Women's History

The road to suffrage did not begin or end with the Nineteenth Amendment. Join Katharine Allen, director of research, and Melissa DeVelvis, PhD, as they recount more than a century of women’s activism through both a national and state-wide lens. Columbia City of Women honorees Ida Salley Reamer, the Rollin sisters, Modjeska Monteith Simkins, and Donella Brown Wilson will all be featured.
