From Boreal Community Media - January 7, 2019


Cook County Higher Education continues to host a series of lectures featuring Dr. Catherine Palczewski on Women's History Series Women's Suffrage 1913-1919.  

The next lecture is The 1913 Woman Suffrage Parade is January 21st 5:30-7pm 

$20 per session

This presentation focuses on the first national suffrage parade and the crowd violence that disrupted it. It works through the idea that women had to actually work at being perceived as public women, and the parade was one way to do that. It also lays the groundwork for the split that would come between NAWSA (National American Woman Suffrage Association) and the NWP (National Women's Party) -- the two big groups working for suffrage.
