“Banners Instead of Guns:” Fighting for Suffrage in Wartime

August 16, 2018

“WHEN MEN ARE DENIED JUSTICE, THEY GO TO WAR. THIS IS OUR WAR, ONLY WE ARE FIGHTING IT WITH BANNERS INSTEAD OF GUNS.” –ALICE PAUL

 

A special event hosted by the National Woman’s Party and the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum, “Banners Instead of Guns” will explore the impact of the Civil War and World War I on the women’s suffrage movement.

Join Kelsey Millay and Jake Wynn for a conversation about how each war influenced the strategies, tactics, and rhetoric used by suffragists in their own fight: the fight for the vote.

This “pay-what-you-will” presentation will take place on August 16 at 6:00 PM at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum.

Kelsey Millay is the Interpretation and Digital Media Manager for the National Woman’s Party at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument.

Jake Wynn is the Director of Interpretation at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office and the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
