A record number of women began serving in Congress this year. The milestone comes in the same year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of American women getting the right to vote.

On this edition of UWM Today, we look at the long circuitous route women have traveled to become full participants in our democratic process. It has been a journey filled with some fascinating stories, including the role Wisconsin played. Our guest today is Carolyn Eichner, associate professor of history and women’s and gender studies in the College of Letters and Science.
