Storytellers from the Past Presents: Dr. Anita Morgan
October 3 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm1:30 pm
The creation of two major women’s suffrage organizations, the Woman’s Franchise League and the Equal Suffrage Association, stands as the most significant twentieth-century event in the Indiana women’s suffrage movement. Both organizations attracted new women to their cause and each adopted new techniques, including automobile tours, street meetings and mass rallies in order to publicize women’s need for the vote. Anita’s talk explores the women who led these groups and their realization that adding new groups of suffragists, like African American men and women, and more public events could persuade reluctant politicians to vote in favor of women’s suffrage.
Guests are required to register ahead of time by contacting the museum as the event will be capped at 30 attendees. The event will be held in the auditorium on the 2nd floor of the museum. There is an elevator located at the parking lot entrance.
