And Nothing Less: Episode 7

Logo for And Nothing Less podcast with Zitkala Sa

The episode title is a line from a speech Susan B. Anthony gave a few months before she died in 1906; she didn’t live to see the 19th amendment added to the Constitution in 1920. But the 19th amendment wasn’t -- and isn’t -- the end of the voting rights story. Pictured with this episode: Zitkala-Sa, who fought for Native Americans' right to vote after 1920.
