It's hard to imagine a time when women didn't have the right to vote, but it actually wasn't that long ago. In 2020, the United States marked the centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment which granted most women the right to vote. We'll take a look at how Margaret "Molly" Brown was involved in it all!
Registration opens May 24.
