The Campaign for the Equal Rights Amendment, 1920—2020
In this virtual lecture, historian and Boston By Foot Trustee Barbara Berenson will address women’s rights after they finally achieved access to the ballot in 1920. How have women fared politically and legally over the past century? Berenson will review some of the key developments over the past century and include a discussion of the long and still-ongoing campaign for the Equal Rights Amendment. She will also discuss the historical connections between women who opposed suffrage and those who oppose women’s rights today.
