As we celebrate the 100th birthday of the 19th Amendment in 2020, it's time to look back at the enormous effort it took for women to be granted full citizenship and the vote.  Western women got the vote long before their Eastern sisters, but don't dare tell an Arizona suffragette that she had it easy.   In this presentation we will expose it all—the heroines, the heroes and the haters.  Presented with funding from the Friends of the Prescott Public Library.Jana Bommersbach is one of Arizona's most honored and respected journalists. She has won accolades in every facet of her career— investigative reporter, magazine columnist, television commentator and author of nationally acclaimed books.
