Enjoy a birthday cake at 6:30 p.m. At 7 p.m., actress and scholar Leslie Goddard will portray suffragist Alice Paul, who arranged parades, organized the first picketing demonstrations outside the White House, lobbied politicians, and endured imprisonment for women's suffrage. After the ratification of the 19th Amendment, Paul authored the Equal Rights Amendment in 1923, which has yet to be adopted. It is free. Register at my.lwv.org/illinois/wheaton/.
