Stanford Law School Assistant Professor Rabia Belt speaks on “Outcasts from the Vote: Women, Suffrage, and Disability in the Long Nineteenth Century U.S.”

Monday, May 31, 2021

Dr. Rabia Belt offered a powerful talk on the intertwining of concepts of sex, race, and disability in the history of suffrage and anti-suffrage movements, drawn from her book manuscript entitled Disabling Democracy in America: Disability, Citizenship, Suffrage and the Law, 1819-1920. In 2016, President Obama appointed her as a Council member to the National Council on Disability, the independent federal agency that advises the federal government on disability matters.
