Giving women the right to vote started at least as early as 1776 when Abigail Adams wrote to her husband John Adams saying, "Remember the ladies... Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of husbands ... If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation." Adams replied that the men will fight the "despotism of the petticoat."

This course traces the history of women achieving the right to vote and subsequent events. Bring to class your love of history and inquisitiveness about an often barely touched upon part of history.

On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment legalized the vote for women. Colorado, however, was way ahead of the curve: Twenty-seven years earlier, on November 7, 1893, Colorado passed a referendum granting women the right to vote. Join a distinguished list of Colorado women as they explore Colorado's unique role in the women's suffrage movement in this course offered by University of Denver's Enrichment Program.
