Travel the decades-long path forged by our grandmothers, their mothers and other countless citizens who struggled to gain
universal suffrage for American women in the early 20th century. A living history rally and dynamic presentation reveal the gains and
setbacks in achieving the right to vote, the changing roles and opinions of women during the era, and a story of conflict within
Maymont’s own family. Who worked tirelessly for passage of the 19th amendment? Who opposed it? All is revealed during this lively
program. Maymont is joined by members of the Richmond Metro League of Women Voters, who inspire women of all viewpoints to
become involved and informed voters. Show your Voter Registration ID and receive a program memento! $7 per person/free for
Maymont members. Register online at maymont.org.
