We Demand: The Suffrage Road Trip
We Demand: The Suffrage Road Trip - lecture presented by Anne Gass
This lecture, presented by Anne Gass, discusses the true story of four women, who in 1915 left San Francisco for Washington DC on a desperate and dangerous mission to demand an amendment to the US Constitution enfranchising women. The story unfolds through the eyes of unsung heroes Ingeborg Kindstedt and Maria Kindberg, middle-aged Swedish immigrants who own the car, do all the driving, and fix what goes wrong. They lose their way in a trackless Nevada desert and get stuck in the mud in Kansas, among many other adventures. Can they arrive in DC at the appointed day and time? Join author and independent historian Anne B. Gass as she shares remarks and historic slides about her historical novel We Demand: The Suffrage Road Trip.
