19th Amendment: 100th Anniversary of Woman Suffrage
August 17 @ 10:00 am - August 20 @ 9:30 pm
Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote, Lakeside Chautauqua will offer educational lectures throughout the week, culminating in a fascinating performance by Annette Baldwin in her one-woman show, The Long Road to Victory on Aug. 18 at 8:15 p.m.
The Long Road to Victory is a portrait of five brilliant, dedicated leaders in the woman suffrage movement: Lucretia Mott, Quaker minister, gifted and inspiring orator, and one of America’s most respected social reformers; Elizabeth Cady Stanton, brilliant leader of the 19th century woman’s rights movement who spoke and wrote on every “radical” reform of the day; Susan B. Anthony, the most recognized and beloved leader in the fight for women’s equality; Alice Paul, militant suffragist of the early 20th century celebrated for her parades, picketing, and imprisonment for the cause; and Carrie Chapman Catt, Anthony’s successor as president of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, masterful strategist, and founder of the League of Woman Voters.
