SPECIAL EXHIBIT SPEAKER SERIES/LINCOLN LECTURE SERIES

WOMEN, POLITICS, AND ABOLITION – A COMPLICATED COLLABORATION.

Online Event, Streamed on the Museum of the Grand Prairie Facebook and YouTube pages, 2 p.m.        

Professor Stacey Robertson will reveal in this how women abolitionists in Illinois and the Old Northwest engaged in partisan politics as an avenue to end slavery and through this process found themselves increasingly aware of their own gendered disempowerment. Their efforts to expand their influence and power laid the groundwork for future women’s rights accomplishments.  Stacey Robertson is the Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs at the State University of New York, Geneseo.
