Description

History Lecture:

Pickets & Persistence, War Service & Women’s Suffrage
American Women’s Fight to Win the Vote

Sunday, March 25, 2018
2:00 pm in the Farmhouse
With Carol Simon Levin

Living History Presenter Carol Simon Levin portrays Jeannette Rankin, America’s first female member of Congress, telling the intertwined stories of women’s suffrage activism, war service, and the political calculus that finally brought the support of President Wilson, the U.S. Congress, and state legislatures to achieve passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote.

Carol Simon Levin is a Youth Services Librarian, author, storyteller and program presenter based in Bridgewater N.J.

Whether she is impersonating the woman who helped to build the Brooklyn Bridge, telling the amazing stories of early women in aviation, engaging families in a rousing Halloween Hootenany of songs and stories, expanding on the mathematical and artistic possibilities of a simple square, or sharing the story of a dolphin who learned to swim with an artificial tail (along with activities to help children understand what it is like to live with a disability), she always strives to create exciting programs that engage her audience’s interests and expand their horizons.

She has always been particularly fascinated by the history of technology and women’s history. For more information on her Telling Her Stories presentations, check out the website tellingherstories.com.
