“The reason their (men’s) participation in that last decade (before ratification of the 19th Amendment) was so important, was because they had the means and the will to help the movement financially and politically.”

Brooke Kroeger on Green Connections Radio podcast

As we commemorate Women's History Month in this tumultuous year, just as President Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris as his VP, it's important to remember the pivotal role men have played in women's advances over time.

Listen to Brooke Kroeger, author of "The Suffragents" about the men who supported ratification of the 19th Amendment, confirming that women have the right to vote, explain more in this fascinating interview on Green Connections Radio podcast with host Joan Michelson. Kroeger is also a professor at New York University School of Journalism and developer of an extensive database on the suffrage movement.

You'll hear:

  • How women built alliances with men in positions of power and influence.
  • Why male support is so important to women’s advancement.
  • How women leveraged the (male-owned) media to drive public opinion and pressure lawmakers.
  • Why women’s roles in wartime were so important to securing women’s rights.
  • Lessons for women today from the fight for women’s suffrage.
  • And, great career advice too!
