October 10- Amanda Owen and the Justice Bell
Finding Justice: The Untold Story About Women’s Fight for the Vote tells the story of a band of intrepid women and their one-ton bronze bell that became a celebrated symbol of the women’s suffrage movement.
The creation of suffragists in Pennsylvania who were agitating for the right to vote, the bell—modeled after the Liberty Bell—helped rally support around the cause of women’s suffrage in those last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
Amanda Owen is an author and an independent scholar of women’s history, specializing in the American women’s suffrage movement. She is a co-founder and the Executive Director of the Justice Bell Foundation.
