On August 26th this year, Americans will mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.  In this program, historian Kathy Wilson investigates why women had to fight for decades to get the right to vote, why black and minority women were excluded from the national suffrage movement, and why we still struggle with women's rights today.
