Soledad O'Brien, 19th Amendment: Then and Now

The National Archives is launching a new exhibit, “Rightfully Hers,” to spotlight a century of political struggle by suffragists, including Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Soledad is joined by three historians – Ann Gordon, Marcia Chatelain, and Maggie Blackhawk – for a discussion about the 19th Amendment.
