Thank you for joining our virtual screening featuring excerpts from the new PBS documentary American Experience: The Vote, which tells the dramatic culmination story of the hard-fought campaign waged by American women for the right to vote — a transformative cultural and political movement that resulted in the largest expansion of voting rights in U.S. history.

After the film, KQED politics and government reporter Marisa Lagos will lead a live conversation about the legacy of suffrage activists and the 19th Amendment’s passage, women's political participation and leadership, and contemporary efforts to expand and shore up voting rights.


Maxine Anderson, League of Women Voters of California

Elaine Elinson, co-author of Wherever There's a Fight: How Runaway Slaves, Suffragists, Immigrants, Strikers and Poets Shaped Civil Liberties in California
