Cancelled-Suffrage Centennial Series Lecture: Dr. Vivan Deno “Guard the Gains: Well Hoosier Working Women Activism”

How did working women agitate for their rights as workers and citizens before and after 1920? Learn more in the presentation by Dr. Vivian Deno, Associate Professor of History at Butler University.

Vivian Deno’s teaching and research is located at the intersection of women’s history and class politics where workingwomen struggled to be respected on the job, paid a fair
wage, and allowed a political voice and vote in the early twentieth century. Her research focuses on workingwomen in the opening decades of the twentieth century in
diffuse settings: at the movies, in correctional institutions, and in other social locations. As an educator, she engages students in challenging traditional narratives about US
history, including women’s suffrage in the state of Indiana. On the faculty of Butler University, she is currently working on a manuscript project on the history of the Indiana
Girls School at the turn of the twentieth century.
