The National World War I Museum & Memorial hosts Mona Siegel to talk about her book, "Peace on Our Terms: The Global Battle for Women's Rights After the First World War." The Sacramento State history professor argues that a wide diversity of women from around the world pushed for greater rights in the wake of the horrors of the Great War, and that some of these women -- who were attending the 1919 to 1920 Paris Peace Conference -- helped push President Woodrow Wilson to support the 19th amendment.
