UH Law Center Professor Knake Jefferson analyzes forgotten history of 19th Amendment 

The 100th Anniversary of the Passage of the 19th Amendment from The American Law Institute on Vimeo.

July 22, 2020 - University of Houston Law Center Professor Renee Knake Jefferson discussed aspects of the women's suffrage that have gone overlooked throughout history in a video published by the American Law Institute commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the 19th Amendment.

"It's definitely an incredible time to be celebrating this right for women," Knake Jefferson said in the video. "But I hope as we celebrate we also remember the history of how that right was secured."

Knake Jefferson is joined in the video by Ninth Circuit Judge Margaret McKeown.
