Lecture: We Demand: The Suffrage Road Trip
No one gave women the right to vote. They had to fight for it; over and over and over again. ‘We Demand: The Suffrage Road Trip,’ by Anne B. Gass brings to life the little-known story of an epic 1915 road trip from San Francisco to DC to demand voting rights for women. The unlikely heroines are Ingeborg Kindstedt and Maria Kindberg, middle-aged, lesbian, Swedish immigrants who own the car, do all the driving, and fix what goes wrong.
