This talk provides new insight into whether, how, and with what impact women cast their ballots in the period immediately following suffrage. Christina Wolbrecht is the Director of the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy C. Robert and Margaret Hanley Family Director of the Notre Dame Washington Program Professor of Political Science.
