Talk & Tea: “No More Pink Teas:” The Militant Surge for Women Suffrage
March 17, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm$5.00 – $7.00
Joanie DiMartino, Poet and Director of Smith-Harris House, East Lyme
The 19-teens saw an increase in bold suffrage activity, from parading in state capitals (such as the one held in Hartford, CT) to picketing the White House. Join Progressive-era suffrage historian Joanie DiMartino to discover how national and CT suffragists participated in a surge of militant political activism that led to women gaining the right to vote in 1920.
A perfect program to celebrate Women’s History Month!
