Our latest podcast episode is a timely conversation with Kevin Kooistra as we discuss the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment through the lens of the suffragist, Hazel Hunkins. Hazel grew up in Billings, MT and joined the National Women's Party, led by Alice Paul, as a young woman. Hazel demonstrated with the Silent Sentinels, chaining herself to the White House gates in 1917, for which she was jailed. We also discuss women of color, including Ida B. Wells, who were extremely important to the women's suffrage movement but were often excluded from the national groups.
