From 2020 to 1920 and Back: One Hundred Years from the 19th Amendment
Keywords:Women's Suffrage Movement, United States, 19th Amendment, Voting Rights Act
AbstractIn January 2021, A Black, South Asian woman, Kamala Harris, has risen to the position of U.S. vice president at the same moment as the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. The article considers the changes that have occurred during the last 100 years in order to question the narrative which describes the conquest of suffrage as a political experience based essentially on white and middle-class women. Emphasizing the intertwining of race and gender involves striking a bare nerve in the history of the U.S. women’s suffrage movement and the battle for political representation.
