University of Colorado to Hold Conference on Women's Enfranchisement

The University of Colorado Law School’s Byron R. White Center for the Study of American Constitutional Law will host the 2020 Ira C. Rothgerber Jr. Conference on Constitutional Law on Friday, April 3, 2020, on the topic:  “Women’s Enfranchisement: Beyond the 19th Amendment.”  2020 marks the centennial of the 19th Amendment, formally extending suffrage to some, but not all, women. But barriers to both political rights and social, lived equality persist, particularly for women at the intersections of race, gender identity, sexuality, and class.  The conference, featuring exciting discussion among diverse scholars and lawyers, will use the centennial to take stock of how far we’ve come and how far we have to go in terms of formal political enfranchisement as well as the social and economic empowerment of women more broadly.  The conference is free and breakfast and lunch will be served to attendees.  Please register here by March 30.
