August 13, 2020
FREEDOM — Freedom Historical Society (FHS), in partnership through a grant from the New Hampshire Humanities, is happy to present "Votes for Women: A History of the Suffrage Movement" by Liz Tentarelli on Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.

The presentation is a virtual program which will be held online using ZOOM. Members of the society and the public are invited to register in advance at the following link to receive access information for the informative meeting. Go to:

www.freedomhistoricalsociety.org/ and follow the instructions to register. Please join the ZOOM meeting prior to the 7 p.m. start time on the 19th.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote. Who were the key players in New Hampshire and the nation? What issues and obstacles did they face? How did suffragists benefit from World War I in the final push for passage of the amendment? Who was left out when women got the right to vote? Using historic photos and documents, Liz Tentarelli will guide us on the journey.

Liz Tentarelli has been a member of the League of Women Voters for over 25 years and since 2009 has been President of the NH League, a non-partisan organization that is the direct descendant of the National American Woman Suffrage Movement. Ms. Tentarelli had a career spanning over 30 years teaching high school and college students, including 19 years at Merrimack College in North Andover, MA.

Please join FHS online, Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. For additional information, call 733-9307.
