The Woman’s Hour Has Struck – Lecture
The Woman’s Hour has Struck – Wisconsin’s role in the women’s suffrage movement.
Join us at the Sheboygan County Historical Museum Saturday, February 22, for a march through suffrage history.
Come at noon to hear from Wisconsin First Lady Kathy Evers! We are honored to have her join us to share about the importance of the 19th Amendment, the statewide celebration, and her role as chair of the Wisconsin Suffrage Centennial Committee.
Then at 1pm enjoy a lecture presented by Simone Munson about Wisconsin’s role in the women’s suffrage movement. Explore the stories of leaders, tactics, losses, and victories as women worked for the right to vote. See how Wisconsin fit within the larger story of enfranchisement and analyze the conflict and complications that suffragists faced as they sought the right to vote.
The Sheboygan County Historical Museum will have FREE Admission 10:00am – 3:00pm. Come early to explore the galleries and exhibits and bring your family and friends. Light refreshments will be served prior to the start of the lecture.
