1037 West McKinley Avenue
An Important Date in History!
This event celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment by Wisconsin on this date in history: June 10, 1919. During the event, watch the PBS documentary: One Woman, One Vote and then hear a panel discussion about the documentary, women in history, and value of the voting today. We want to celebrate the day by ensuring we understand how the 19th Amendment came to be, how to protect it, and commit to exercising it today.
Please consider wearing white in honor of the Suffragettes. They wanted to be visible in a crowd, to distinguish easily which shop owners were supportive, to be able to speak without having to say a word. The U.S. movement used white, gold and purple for buttons, pins, sashes, flags, clothing, horses — you name it. White symbolized purity; gold, hope; and purple, dignity. Wearing white was also a way to demonstrate their purity in reaction to men hurling insults like “Any women in the streets must be women of the streets” to discredit their work.
This event will be held at NO Studios, hosted by Artist Member, Bonnie J. Edwards, M.A., E.D. and Co-Franchise Owner/Area Director ClubZ! Tutoring
