Bridging Differences Symposium: Conversations on Gender, Race, and Equality

Dr. Laura Free

Dr. Laura Free will present this year’s keynote address, "Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Racist?" Dr. Free is a historian at Hobarth and Smith Colleges and the author of Suffrage Reconstructed: Gender, Race and Voting Rights in the Civil War Era. Dr. Free will be discussing the ways that racism was adopted as a rhetorical tool in the 1860s, and the implications it had for the suffrage movement into the 20th century and for feminism beyond that.
