Centennial of Suffrage—Women of Color // Presented in partnership with Target
In some states, women of color were denied the right to vote, and their contributions to the women’s suffrage movement remain untold stories. Watch the panel as they discuss how far women of color have come, how they reference history to inform the future, what progress has and has not been made, and most importantly, how white women and male allies can show up to support equality for all women.
