Please join the GFWC for its Annual Women’s History Month Event on March 5, 2020 from 2-4 pm. The event will be held at Headquarters at 1734 N Street NW, Washington DC. Light refreshments will be served.
As the centennial of the 19th Amendment approaches, the Women’s History Month Event will focus on celebrating the history that lead to its passage. GFWC is proud to have endorsed women’s right to vote in 1914, and to have counted a multitude of suffragists among out ranks. This women’s history month will be dedicated to celebrating those who helped to ensure that our voices are heard.
We are proud to announce that this year’s event will feature Kate Campbell Stevenson. Kate’s one-woman show, Amending America: How Women Won the Vote, is meant to help illuminate forgotten history of the suffrage movement. She will highlight women such as Abigail Adams, First Lady and advocate for women’s rights, Rose Crabtree, a member of the 1920 all-female town council of Jackson Hole, and Alice Paul, co-founder of the national women’s party. Kate’s performance also encourages women to become more active participants in the political process.
