"'No More Pink Teas:' The Militant Surge for Woman Suffrage"
The 19-teens saw an increase in bold suffrage activity, from large parades in state capitals, such as the one held in Hartford, CT, to picketing the White House.
Join Progressive-era suffrage historian Joanie DiMartino to discover how national and Connecticut suffragists participated in a surge of militant political activism that led to women gaining the right to vote in 1920.
An excellent talk to celebrate Women's History Month (March), Women's Equality Day (August 26), voting in November--or any time!
This talk may include an exhibit of reproduction suffrage memorabilia and/or handouts, such as bookmarks from the Alice Paul Institute, or copies of Susan B. Anthony's cream biscuit recipe. Joanie will travel to your site / public location to present this talk, and will offer suggestions to help you plan the event. This program pairs well with a tea!
This item must be redeemed between March 1 and November 30, 2018.
Speaker will travel within 2 hours / 100 miles driving distance from Mystic, Connecticut.
