"Woman Suffrage Has Been Defeated" Houston Post headline in 1915, echoed other anti-suffragist publications around the nation. The New York Times and Life Magazine were both very anti-suffragist. Our guest speaker, Anne Sloan, will detail Houston Women's struggle to win the vote, their participation in national suffrage groups, and their last minute victory due to a court case which allowed Harris County Women to vote without a Poll Tax. 

Houston historian and author,  Anne Sloan, will give us a brief review of local women's struggle to overcome the opposition resulting in the 19th Amendment passage on August 18, 1920,  and lead a discussion of what has transpired since, including a presentation of 5-6 women who are making a difference in Houston today, including Dr. Eileen Stansbery, the Chief Scientist at NASA (JSC).
