This event presents a unique opportunity for us to illuminate female role models and their successes are an inspiration for future generations of girls and boys” says NWHM President and CEO Joan Wages, “For too long women’s contributions and achievements have been left out of the historical narrative and it’s time to ensure that women’s contributions are included to complete America’s story.”

 

The event will be held at The Montage Beverly Hills – 225 North Canon Drive, Beverly Hills, CA. This event is presented by Glamour and Lifeway Foods.

In Their Footsteps Suffrage Walking Tour

June 2nd, 2016

On June 17 at 11am you can walk on the same ground where suffragists fought for the right to vote in the “In Their Footsteps” tour. Through the power of place, images, and the suffragists’ own words, the struggle for equality will become real and visceral. Afterwards, you will not only have a greater understanding of the women’s struggles to secure the right to vote, but you will also become more inspired to vote yourself. The American woman suffrage movement is recognized as officially starting in 1848, at the Seneca Falls Women’s Rights Convention in New York. Over the next 72 years, generations of activist women (and men) worked tirelessly until the 19th Amendment was adopted. It took the efforts of a wide range of women, from the most radical advocates of male and female equality, to women who saw the right to vote as necessary to more effectively advocate for moral and social reform. Their efforts to succeed set the stage for grassroots efforts to come, proving that determined citizens can achieve change.

 

The tour begins just outside the Archives-Navy Memorial Metro Station near the Navy Memorial. The tour will cover 2.5 miles and will last about an hour and a half, ending at the Library of Congress. Please bring water. The tour will still occur if it is raining.
