Sex was never the only battleground for women’s voting rights.
Amended, a podcast from Humanities New York, marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment by challenging the suffrage story most Americans learn in school. Host Laura Free, a historian of women and politics, and her guests take us back to the 1800's and up to the present day to tell the stories of under-recognized women who also fought injustice based on race, citizenship status and class.
Hosted by Laura Free.
