In 2020, the University of Southern Indiana hosted the American Women's Suffrage Amendment Symposium to mark the 100th anniversary of the Women's Suffrage Amendment. While this accomplishment was worth celebrating, it is also one with a mixed legacy. Though women won the rights of citizenship and access to the ballot, that victory was not extended to all women or all Americans for decades after. "Today the United States celebrates its legacy as a model democratic nation, yet many still do not enjoy the full rights of suffrage and political forces have conspired to limit access to the ballot and dilute the power of the vote," said Dr. Denise Lynn, coordinator of the Symposium.

This symposium explored the complicated history of women’s suffrage in the United States and beyond, as well as the question of citizenship, and who has access to citizenship.

The symposium was presented in partnership with USI with Africana Studies and Global Studies.
