Jenn’s talk, From Suffrage to Selfies: Expectations and Realities for American Women, will talk about her involvement with the Her Flag project, a nation-wide art and travel project created by artist Marilyn Artus to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the 72 years long fight for women's national voting rights.
