100 Years Strong - A Woman's Vote
 
Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment granted and guarantees all American women the right to vote. Achieving this milestone involved a lengthy and difficult struggle; victory took decades of activism and protest throughout the nation – including Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Today, 100 years later, women vote at higher rates than their male counterparts. How has women’s role, participation and influence in politics and government shaped the political campaign landscape? Are campaign managers focusing on strategies that garner women’s votes? Are these strategies successful? Join our panel as they discuss the evolution and impact of women voting in America.
