"Kansas Women Have Done It!" Agitating for the Women's Vote

The LWVMRC is proud to be a co-sponsor of this exciting event:
In collaboration with the Riley County Historical Society, the Literature track of the English Department at Kansas State University is celebrating the anniversary of the women’s vote.The date for the event is March 3rd, 2020, the birthday of the activist Susanna Madora Salter (March 2, 1860 – March 17, 1961), the first woman mayor and one of the first women elected to any political office in the United States. Salter is also a Kansas State alumni (she attended Kansas Agricultural College).
Join us for an evening of celebration of Suffragist songs, poetry and diary readings, and honoring those who paved our way.
