How the 19th Amendment affected women of color

More from this show

The 19th Amendment didn’t impact all women equally. Many women of color didn’t get to vote until years later. Guest host Lauren Gilger spoke with the Executive Director of ASU’s Gammage, Colleen Jennings-Roggensock, about her thoughts on women’s rights. 

Jennings-Roggensock thinks that women have come very far but there’s still a lot of work to be done. For starters, women were fighting to vote at the same time that Black people were fighting to vote.

“I am thrilled where we are as women today.”

As not only a woman, but a woman of color, Jennings-Roggensock feels there’s still a lack of representation in that aspect.

This is a part of our special edition episode on the 19th Amendment.
