DEADLINE EXTENDED. While there has been interest in the suffrage movement in both America and England for many years now, one area that has not received as much scholarly attention is the analysis of Life Writing created by those within the movement. Both working- and middle-class women provide an intimate portrait of what it was like to fight for suffrage for so many years.  I propose a panel that examines the connections between suffragettes of different classes, ages, and nationalities as well as those in positions of power who supported them throughout. By May 30, please submit a 300-word abstract, brief biographical statement, and any AV requirements to Sarah N. MacDonald, University of Indianapolis, at smacdon8@kent.edu.
