Evanston History Center / Charles Dawes House

August 2020 marks the centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, which gave American women the right to vote. Evanston women were integral to the local, state, and national suffrage movements. Women such as Frances Willard, Elizabeth Boynton Harbert, and Catharine Waugh McCulloch created successful strategies in support of broader citizenship rights for all women. Lori Osborne, EHC Historian and Director of the Evanston Women’s History Project, will give a talk based on her research. Reception at 6:30 PM.
