The centuries-long fight for women's suffrage was slow and arduous. Suffragists around the world took part in parades and protests to garner support, while men in office challenged their colleagues to support or deny equal voting rights for women. The story of suffrage in Arkansas is largely undocumented and sometimes unclear. Portraits of Courage explores women's suffrage in The Natural State, taking a unique look at some of the more influential Arkansas suffragists as well as some of the national figures who inspired their fight. Combining creative reenactments and interviews with leading Arkansas historians, professors, and modern-day activists, this course shows that while the Nineteenth Amendment celebrates its 100th anniversary, the lessons learned from its passage are just as relevant today.
