Program Description

Event Description

In honor of Women's History Month and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, join us to learn about the Women's Suffrage movement in Oklahoma. Our guest presenter, Dr. Jennifer Holland, will tell the story of how Oklahoma women gained their right to vote 2 years before the historic 1919 date and how the Suffragette Movement played out on the national scale.

Dr. Jennifer Holland is currently an Assistant Professor of history at the University of Oklahoma, where she teaches, among other things, classes on Oklahoma History and Women in the American West. She specializes broadly in histories of gender, sexuality, and race in the North American West and is author of Tiny You: A Western History of the Anti-Abortion Movement (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2020). She received a PhD from the University of Wisconsin and a MA from Utah State University.
