Assistant Professor Allison Lange, College of Arts and Sciences, contributes heavily to the Time article “On Women's Equality Day, Here Are 3 Things to Know About the Suffrage Movement.”

Among other topics, Lange discusses the 15th and 19th Amendments, the Seneca Falls Convention in 1948, and social rights activist Susan B. Anthony. The article was written in observance of Women’s Equality Day.
