The 2020 suffrage centennial is making an impact, even with all the complications, partisan politics, and unexpected events. Suffragette City 100 is one example. It’s a fine example of an attempt to make the history of the early women’s rights movement accessible. And Edna Buckman Kearns is highlighted, among many activists, within the context of her times.
This is what Suffragette City 100 has to say about itself: “Suffragette City 100 is a non-partisan multimedia historic timeline countdown to election 2020. Its focus is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment by retelling the epic saga of the 144 year fight for the women’s right to vote from 1776 to 1920, and its intertwining with the abolitionist movement as well as advancing the causes of civil, labor, and human rights.”
