“Votes for Women” in Western Pennsylvania - Monday, August 17th -- 7:30pm-8:15pm
Join Doors Open as we explore women’s battle for the ballot in western Pennsylvania. Meet Pittsburgh suffragists who paraded, protested, and rallied their way to the ballot box.
Along the way they drove primitive trucks over Pennsylvania back roads, lobbied political bosses for support, and invented creative ways to raise money for their cause.
Commemorate the August centennial of the Nineteenth Amendment with this look at local women’s history.
