The Kansas City Public Library presents Author and award-winning historian Kimberly Hamlin

Watch the online presentation, co-presented by The Women’s Equality Coalition Live at YouTube.com/kclibrary

 

At 23, while serving as the youngest school principal in the state, Alice Chenoweth was excoriated in Ohio’s newspapers in 1876 for having an affair with the state’s married commissioner of common schools. Rather than retreat in shame, she changed her name, moved to New York City, and spent the rest of her life challenging the double standards of gender.

Helen Hamilton Gardner emerged as a key figure in the fight for women’s voting rights and, in the words of a fellow suffragist, “the most potent factor” in the passage and ratification of the 19thAmendment in 1920.Hamlin is an associate professor of history,global and intercultural studies at Miami (Ohio) University.
