Virtual Event: From Parlor to Politics, Women’s Fight for the Right to Vote
Wednesday August 26 @ 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Join us for a virtual presentation on women’s suffrage in America.
This virtual event outlines the astonishing history of the vision, courage, strategic planning, networking and tenacity demonstrated to win the 72-year battle for women’s political, social and legal equality. Learn of the conditions governing 19th century women’s lives and what provoked them into organization and revolution for women’s right to vote. As the story and the disturbing circumstances are revealed you will hear moving passages from the speeches of Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Alice Paul. At the conclusion of this Visual Journey, Annette portrays League of Women Voters founder Carrie Chapman Catt on the day she receives news of the 19th Amendment becoming law. She also invites questions from those in our virtual chat room.

In addition to her Visual Journey, Parlor to Politics, Annette is the creator of The Long Road to Victory, in which she has woven vignettes of Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B.
