此活动将用英文进行。

 

今天,美国的民主是基于所有公民享有平等投票权选举政府官员的原则。但是你知道1920年以前大多数妇女在美国没有投票权吗?赢得投票权是一场史诗般的斗争它需要修改宪法并说服美国强大的男性政治家,妇女在美国治理中应享有平等的发言权。一群勇敢的活动家是如何领导永远改变美国人看待妇女的运动的?


请加入我们在北京美国中心的活动,美国大使馆的一名外交官将讨论赋予妇女投票权的运动历史,这就是所谓的“选举权运动”。这个话题在今天很重要,因为在美国十一月的总统大选,超过一半的选民将是女性。我们的主讲嘉宾将谈论美国女性选民最关心的问题,以及女性选民将如何决定谁成为美国的下一任总统。

 

6岁以下儿童谢绝参加。

The program will be conducted in English. 


Today, America’s democracy is based on the principle that all of its citizens deserve an equal right to vote for government officials.  But did you know that, before 1920, most women in America did not have the right to vote?  Winning the right to vote was an epic struggle that required amending the Constitution and convincing America’s powerful male politicians that women deserved an equal voice in the governing of the United States.  How did a group of brave activists lead a movement to forever change the way Americans view women?


Please join us at the Beijing American Center, where a diplomat from the American Embassy will talk about the history of the movement to grant women the right to vote, which is called the “suffrage movement.”  This topic is very relevant today, since in the U.S. presidential election this November, more than half of the voters will be women.  Our host will talk about the issues that American women voters care about most, and how women voters will help decide who becomes the next President of the United States.


This program is not suitable for children under 6.
