Virtual History on Tap: Women, Alcohol, and The Vote

Wed, May 6, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

This event will still take place, but instead of happening in-person at 
25 O'Clock Brewing Company
, it will occur instead on Facebook Live streaming on the 
Museum of the Grand Prairie
 Facebook page.
Did you know that Prohibition was instituted by the 18th amendment and women were allowed to vote by the 19th amendment? Prohibition was ratified in January 1919, Woman Suffrage in August 1920. Some suffragists promoted Prohibition and that may have pushed forward their voting rights. Ironically, we can now toast women’s right to vote at this “History on Tap.” It will include a short talk, slide show and discussion about the national movement and local players, led by Barb Garvey, Director of the 
Museum of the Grand Prairie
. This talk is a companion to the museum's special exhibit, How Long Must Women Wait? Woman Suffrage and Women’s Rights in Champaign County, opening March 7, 2020. Be sure to stop by 
25 O'Clock Brewing Company
 beforehand to pickup some beer to enjoy while viewing this virtual event!
