Description

Author Kathleen Waters Sander and curator Natalie Elder will discuss the role that Baltimore's Gilded Age philanthropist Mary Elizabeth Garrett played in the fight to pass the 19th amendment. Garrett's suffrage activism revived the fight in Baltimore in the early 1900s. Perhaps more importantly, her championing of women's education decades before created a generation of women who were equipped to passionately fight for equality—which required women's suffrage. As part of this talk, Waters Sander and Elder will explore an excerpt from Sander's book Mary Elizabeth Garrett: Society and Philanthropy in the Gilded Age, and a new online exhibit from the Chesney Medical Archives about Johns Hopkins women who fought for suffrage.
