This series, called “We the Women,” will roll out the first weeks of August, culminating on the anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which became part of the Constitution of the United States on Aug. 18, 1920.

Today, We the Women continues, featuring a conversation between Post and Courier reporter Jenna Schiferl and Brigadier General Sally Selden, Ph.D., Provost and Dean of The Citadel.
