"Women's Suffrage: Moral Advancement or Politics as Usual?" (Online): The suffrage movement operated under two very different principles. Elizabeth Cady Stanton saw wome'’s suffrage as a right that had been unfairly denied to women, while Frederick Douglass saw women’s suffrage as a means to save the country’s soul. This presentation by Meg Mott considers both of these visions. Would women's participation in politics improve the moral character of the nation? Or would politics degrade women voters? Presented by Meg Mott. 7 p.m. "Democracy 20/20" on Wednesdays is part of Vermont Humanities Digital Channel Fall Conference 2020: online, Facebook, YouTube. Free (donations welcome for presenters).
