Known to history as the amendment granting women across the U.S. the right to vote, the 19th Amendment didn't immediately improve the lives of women. In many states, women already had full voting rights. In others, especially those in the South, African American women were blocked from casting votes because of voter-suppression laws.

Join us for "After the 19th" a virtual dialogue on the aftereffects of the 19th amendment. Moderated by Nan Keohane, president of Duke University (1993-2004), the conversation will focus on the legacy of the amendment, including the many women it left disenfranchised; the gender voting gap; and the impact of race, socioeconomic status and gender identity on women's voting patterns.

Keohane will be joined by Deondra Rose, assistant professor at the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University and director of research at Polis: Center for Politics; Victoria DeFrancesco Soto AM'03, PhD'07, assistant dean at the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin; and Stacie Taranto '01, associate professor of history at Ramapo College of New Jersey.
