Welcome to Prologued! Prologued is a publication of Origins: Current Events in Historical Perspective. Origins, a joint venture between the Ohio State University and Miami University History Departments, and hosted by Origins historian, Sarah Paxton. Prologued is a serial podcast from Origins that performs in depth discussions of historical roots that have been lost, ignored, or misconstrued, resulting in modern society being confused by the current course of events. With the help of esteemed scholars, each season will re-construct the history of a major issue society is facing, in an effort to not only explain how we got here, but to reveal a path forward. Season 1 will analyze the myth of the women's voting bloc. Now, as we wade through the 2020 election cycle and celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment granting American women the right to vote, it is the perfect time to re-evaluate the political and electoral history of women in the United States beginning all the way back with the American Revolution. Join us as we reveal critical conflicts between women's organizations, triumphs and set backs, the women who were left behind, and what modern political processes can learn from the past. Season 1 premieres August 11, 2020 and will air on Tuesdays through September. Host: Sarah Paxton Connect with us!
