Join University Libraries for a conversation with Dr. Kimberly A. Hamlin, award-winning historian, author and professor (Miami University of Ohio) specializing in the history of women, gender and sex in the United States.
The event will take place in the 11th Floor Campus Reading Room. Topics discussed will include the suffrage movement, the current climate for voting rights and Hamlin's new book, Free Thinker: Sex, Suffrage, and the Extraordinary Life of Helen Hamilton Gardener (March 2020, W.W. Norton).
Free Thinker tells the fascinating story of the “fallen woman” who reinvented herself and became “the most potent factor” in Congressional passage of the Nineteenth Amendment and the highest-ranking woman in the federal government. Copies of Free Thinker will be available for purchase at the event.
