    On the centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment, it can be difficult to imagine that the road to women’s suffrage in the United States was actually quite long and circuitous. As in current day social movements, suffragists employed a number of different strategies in their fight to make American women’s right to vote the law of the land. As far back as the 1860s, women’s suffragists even opposed passage of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments because the Reconstruction Amendments placed the word “male” in the Constitution for the first time, in extending the vote only to African American men. Later, the movement attempted a state-by-state approach, fighting for inclusion of women’s voting rights in state constitutions. Another approach, a legal strategy known as “the New Departure,” brought the issue to the courts. Women voted illegally and then turned to the court with the argument that citizenship itself conferred a right to vote on both women and men. Yet in 1874, in Minor v. Happersett, the Supreme Court held that the privileges of citizenship did not include the right to vote, setting back women’s suffrage for many years. Finally, the suffrage movement turned to the passage of a Constitutional amendment, with a legislative fight that spanned decades. Even after the amendment passed, opponents fought its ratification until the Supreme Court held in Leser v. Garnett that the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution had, in fact, been constitutionally established.

  • Bergman Memorial Lecture on Women, Children and Human Rights

    The Jane Ellen Bergman Memorial Lecture Series on Women, Children and Human Rights is the result of a gift from Dr. Barbara Yates, a longtime professor at the University of Illinois and a friend of the late Bergman. According to Dr. Yates, Bergman was “an ordinary citizen who chose to devote her professional life to public service. As a nursing administrator, public health educator, and family therapist, she developed an abiding interest in the human rights of common people, especially the plight of women and children, in a rapidly changing world.” This series is a lasting tribute to Bergman and an opportunity for USD students, faculty/administrators, and community members to hear distinguished lecturers discuss issues concerning women, children, and human rights.
