The Final Debate: Women’s Suffrage Ratified in Massachusetts? with James Capuzzi & Sina Mansouri This event is being held at the Adams Free Library -92 Park Street, Adams, MA 01220

Speakers: James Capuzzi & Sina Mansouri

Re-imagining of Massachusetts House of Representatives’ 3-hour June 25th Debate which concluded with the 19th amendment ratification vote of 185-47. James Capuzzi will represent the anti-women's suffrage position as an “anti” and Sina Mansouri will present the pro- suffrage position. Using The Revolution, Boston Globe archives, and other research materials as the basis for argumentation, they will distill the 3-hour debate into a rousing hour of argument.

At the end of the debate attendees will have the opportunity to submit their votes as

“representatives”, followed by our House Speaker announcing the ratification of the 19th amendment!

James Capuzzi is the Executive Director of the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum and has an M.A. in Sustainable Cultural Heritage Management.

Sina Mansouri has a B.A. in Classical Studies. They were both active in the National Parliamentary Debate Association (NPDA) collegiate debate circuit from 2013 – 2017.

All events are free to the public.
