The Struggle for Women's Suffrage: Revisiting Our History, Rededicating Our Future

  • Moore Community Center 125 State Street Ellsworth, ME 04605 (map)

LWV-Downeast Monthly Meeting. Join us on the second Saturday of each month. Lunch is offered, $10 contribution suggested.

This month we'll be commemorating the 19th Amendment, reflecting on lessons learned and what remains undone. 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, when women won the right to vote. This presentation celebrates that historic victory and the women who led the movement, but it also provides a sober reflection on the compromises that split the movement and left many voters behind--choices that continue to echo 100 years later. Presented by Ann Luther and Sheila Kirby.
