Women Empowering Women: How Wealthy Women Helped Women Get the Right to Vote

Historian/Author Joan Johnson shares the impact stories of Phoebe Hearst, Alva Vanderbilt Belmont and others. All of them, wealthy white women who over 100 years ago contributed millions of dollars to promote suffrage, provide working women access to higher education and champion reproductive rights. Essential stories to better understand the deep historical roots of the tensions that persist today.

As we approach the 100th anniversary of women's voting rights, their stories are still relevant to women, politics and money today.  Their enormous impact, as well as the problems they caused, are essential to understanding the modern woman's movement and political campaigns.

Programs are open to the public; $15 requested donation. No reservation needed.
