Suffragists Project Jukebox

In recognition of the upcoming 100th anniversary of the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment, which gave women of the United States the right to vote, the Oral History Program at the University of Alaska Fairbanks has updated the:

Recovering Our Past, The Struggle for Women’s Suffrage Project Jukebox

This Project Jukebox contains a slideshow of images with audio excerpted from oral history interviews conducted in the 1970s with women who were directly involved with the original struggle for women’s suffrage in the Lower 48.  It is a great resource for education about this nationally important issue and anniversary, as well as serving as the basis for conversations about women gaining the right to vote in Alaska and current access to equal voting rights.
