During the spring of 1920, all political eyes were on Delaware. The General Assembly was meeting in special session to consider ratifying the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women’s constitutional right to vote. Thirty-five states had ratified; only one more was needed. In this struggle, women experienced a formidable and surprising foe; other women. Nowhere is that more evident than in Delaware, where a massive battle to be the last state to ratify the amendment took place. On June 2, 1920, The Women’s Committee of Delaware Opposed to Women’s Suffrage effectively lobbied the state legislature who voted down the amendment. Anne Boylan and Emily Green will share the stage to discuss both the suffrage and anti-suffrage movements that were active in the First State.
