Featured Speaker: Linda Harris Dobkins, Ph.D., author and Professor Emerita of Economics, Emory and Henry College
Economist Linda Harris Dobkins, offers us a look at the political/economic calculus that led Missouri legislators to give St. Louis women the vote. After which, we’ll analyze the actions of the early female electorate to see if St. Louis women fulfilled, or frustrated, St. Louis mens’ expectations.
The Vote: What St. Louis Men Expected, What St. Louis Women Did is a Perspectives on Science and History Series presentation of The Academy of Science – St. Louis and the Missouri History Museum and a Girls Can STEM Series initiative of The Academy of Science – St. Louis and the Zonta Club of St. Louis, presented in conjunction with the Museum exhibition, Beyond the Ballot: St. Louis and Suffrage.
