Nonviolent Protest & the American Women’s Suffrage Movement
From 1912 – 1919 women’s suffrage activists engaged in confrontational acts of nonviolent protest: demonstrations, picketing, burning President Wilson in effigy and other “outrageous performances.” Yet they are rarely mentioned as pioneers in the use of nonviolent direct action. In this illustrated lecture, historian Leslie Goddard explores why the women’s suffrage moment should be remembered as one of the most remarkable nonviolent protest movements in history. 

This program is part of an overall celebration of the 101st Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment, organized by the League of Women Voters Greater Peoria, Peoria Historical Society, Peoria Public Library, Dunlap Public Library District, and Peoria Riverfront Museum.
