Washburn University

At the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, Washburn University will host an academic conference focused on the past and present of suffrage around the globe. Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, legal scholars and professionals, and independent scholars were invited to submit proposals to present. Most events will be free and open to the public. Although there is no registration fee, please register for the conference to ensure sufficient materials and space.


This conference has been made possible by generous funding from Washburn Women’s Venture Partners and Cynthia Heath.
