Welcome to Women’s History Month!
This month we have these exciting opportunities for you:



Wednesday, March 18 | 5:30pm | Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice, Theatre & Rotunda

Bergman Memorial Lecture: 100th Anniversary of Women's Right to Vote, featuring League of Women Voters Deputy Director Dora Rose. Free. To register, click here.

Details: Suffragists fought for 72 years and employed a number of different strategies to make American women’s right to vote the law of the land, including opposing passage of the 14th and 15th Amendments because they specified the word “male” in the Constitution. Our foremothers also voted illegally to force a court ruling, which ultimately set back women’s suffrage for many years. Come find out more about the measures suffragists were willing to take to earn voting rights for themselves and generations of women to come.

 

Saturday, March 31 | 5:30 | La Jolla Woman’s Club
