    Online Event, Streamed on the Museum of the Grand Prairie Facebook and YouTube pages, 7 p.m.        

    It had been a 72-year struggle for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution guaranteeing women their right to vote, with thousands of women dedicating themselves to “getting the vote,” but it was Susan B. Anthony, a former school teacher and advocate for temperance and abolition who through her leadership for women’s political equality, became affectionately and respectfully known as the “mother of The Cause.” Hear from Ms. Anthony herself as she describes her tireless work towards a more just society. Join Annette Baldwin, as Susan B. Anthony for this informative and inspiring presentation. Be sure to visit our special exhibit, How Long Must Women Wait? Woman Suffrage and Women’s Rights in Champaign County, and learn about more leading ladies from our history! FREE. For more info: (217) 586-2612 or pcain@ccfpd.org.
