Women and the Vote
October 7, 2020
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. “Performing History: Women and the Vote,” a civic and cultural initiative that celebrates that centenary, is available through a special performance website.
“Women and the Vote” is the result of a collaboration among students from Virginia Tech and Radford University who enrolled in a joint class in the spring of 2020. When they were forced to move online, they decided to devise a web-based theatrical work that explores the history of the women’s suffrage movement in the United States. Read the story here.
The project was made possible through an Instructional Innovation Grant from the Virginia Tech Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and a research/scholarly project award from Radford University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. Generous support has also been provided by the School of Performing Arts at Virginia Tech, the Virginia Tech Center for Humanities, the Department of Theatre and Cinema at Radford University, the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County, and the Virginia Tech Departments of English, Religion and Culture, and Apparel, Housing, and Resource Management.
