Join the Women’s Museum of California and historian Wendy L. Rouse, author of Public Faces, Secret Lives: A Queer History of the Women’s Suffrage Movement on January 17th at 12:00 PM PST (3:00 PM EST) on Zoom.

In this book, Wendy Rouse explores the important role of queerness and queer suffragists in the fight for the vote. The traditional narrative of women’s suffrage history sanitized the lives of queer suffragists contributing to the historical erasure of the queer history of the movement. Yet, it was often their very queerness that helped propel the movement forward.

This book highlights the personal and professional alliances that queer suffragists built and the innovative strategies they developed to protect and preserve their most intimate relationships— relationships that were ultimately crucial to the success of the women’s suffrage movement.
