Temperance and Woman’s Suffrage: An Untold Story

Lori Osborne, director of the Evanston Women’s History Project, was recently invited to speak on a panel covering the topic of Temperance and Woman Suffrage at the National Archives in Washington D.C. In partnership with the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, the National Archives hosts an annual women’s history month event and this year the event was themed to go along with a new exhibit at the archives — Spirited Republic: Alcohol in American History. If you’d like to hear more about the topic and the work of Frances Willard and the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union (both call Evanston home) for woman’s suffrage, you can watch the presentation below.
