This youth-led virtual forum—in which Cambridge Rindge and Latin high school students will moderate a conversation with local women officials— will empower, center, and preserve the experiences of women in politics as they explore their intersectional identities and their roles in political life and the upcoming 2020 election.
HerVote is a civic engagement project that will bring students, adults, and elders into conversation with one another and their communities around the issue of women’s voting and political participation. #HerVote, created to honor the centennial of the 19th amendment, is a partnership between the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute and Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. #HerVote aims to provide a platform for women and girls for sharing the issues that matter to them with a broad audience and to draw intergenerational connections between our present moment and the long history of women’s contested place in American political life.
