The Fight, Might and Right to Vote: Then and Now

6:00 PM – 7:15 PM

Description

Join us for a historical portrayal by Her Story Theatre of Illinois suffragettes, Grace Wilbur Trout, Ida B. Wells and Catherine McCullough, who fought for the vote and the ratification of the 19th Amendment in Illinois. These three distinct personalities with very different approaches banded together to form a powerful, united front in fighting for equality in a day when little was offered for women.

Anne Jamieson, president of the League of Women Voters of Chicago, reminds us that the fight for the right to vote continues today in many forms and suggests how the might of individuals is still necessary in overcoming voting disparities.
