Join the Alice Paul Institute for a program with Professor Wendy Rouse who's research explores the queer history of the suffrage movement. Rouse examines how the traditional narrative of women's suffrage history ignores the role of queer suffragists in the movement. The sanitizing of the private lives and the creation of public personas has contributed to the historical erasure of the lives and loves of prominent queer suffragists. Her talk will explore how the suffrage movement changed the lives of queer suffragists and how queer suffragists changed the suffrage movement. Rouse will also discuss the implications of this new framework to our approach to understanding women's suffrage history.
