Announcer: Welcome to the How World War One Changed America podcast series, sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation with host Dr. Libby O'Connell.
Libby O'Connell: Hi everybody. I'm Libby O'Connell and I'm delighted to have as a guest today, Jennifer Keene. She's Dean at Wilkinson College, and professor of history at Chapman University. So welcome Jennifer. I'm so glad you can join us.
Jennifer Keene: Thank you. Thank you for having me.
Libby O'Connell: Today's theme is women in World War One. Could you give us a brief background on the pre World War One suffrage movement? That's going to be our focus here and I was wondering if you could just help set it up.
