SPRINGFIELD­ — The Lincoln Land Community College Academy of Lifelong Learning and the Illinois State Museum invite the public to the upcoming speaker series "Standing on Her Shoulders" being held in recognition of the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage. Events will be held Sundays, May 5, July 21 and Sept. 22 at 2 p.m. in the Thorne Deuel Auditorium at the Illinois State Museum, 502 S. Spring St.

 

The presentations in the series are:

 

May 5: "March of the Women: Music for the 100th Anniversary of Suffrage" – Phil Passen will play the hammered dulcimer and sing, providing a narrative about women in society and discussing the ways in which songs supported the changes sought in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

 

July 21: "Casting a Historic Vote: Suffrage in Illinois" – Jeanne Schultz Angel will examine how the struggle for enfranchisement was strategized differently in local, state and federal elections and will explain the paths walked by female leaders in our state. She will show how the diverse group of activists fought against sexism and racism and for the right to vote.

 

Sept. 22: "The Ripple" – Historic reenactors and contemporary women will recall their own experiences and talk about the future. They will discuss how gaining the right to vote was one step on the road to full equality and how, standing on the shoulders of those who came before, women continue to seek equal opportunity and rights in their everyday lives.
