About the News Channel
Suffrage Wagon News Channel provides multi-media programs of education and entertainment about the suffrage or Votes for Women movement (1848-1920) so that citizens (and especially young people) are inspired to participate more fully in the democratic process.
Suffrage Wagon News Channel uses multi-media to bring the women’s suffrage movement to life through personal stories, news, features, and digital media. The combined effort of tens of thousands of activists like suffragist Edna Kearns spans several generations and it is a source of inspiration and leadership today.
