The Justice Bell Story and the Pennsylvania Women’s Suffrage Movement
Amanda Owen presents the little-known story of how a bronze bell became a celebrated symbol of the women’s suffrage movement. The creation of suffragists in Pennsylvania who were agitating for the right to vote, the Justice Bell helped rally support around the cause in the last crucial years leading up to the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment.
Amanda is the Executive Director of the Justice Bell Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to reclaim women’s history, highlight women’s contributions, and to honor the Justice Bell and its historic role in the American struggle for women’s suffrage and equal rights.
