Jeannette Rankin: Champion of Persistence
August 20, 2019 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm9:00 pm
When Jeannette Rankin found the Suffrage movement, her life began. She campaigned for suffrage all over the country. She was the first US Congresswoman elected in 1916 from Montana. Why has history forgotten her? Because she was the only congressperson to oppose the second world war? Or because she stood on the side of labor and opposed Big Mining? Maybe because she was one of the first to question the US military presence In Vietnam. Hear her story, and get inspired to become a thorn yourself.
