On Thursday, July 2, it will be "Alice Paul Winning Votes for Women." Alice Paul, portrayed by Leslie Goddard, was one of the most dynamic leaders in the fight to win votes for women. An innovative and tireless worker, Paul arranged parades, organized the first picketing demonstrations outside the White House, lobbied politicians, and endured imprisonment for women's suffrage. As fearless as she was pioneering, she remains an icon in the struggle for equal rights.

On Thursday, Aug. 6, the lecture will be "From Parlour to Politics." Learn the astonishing history of the vision, courage, strategic planning, networking and tenacity demonstrated to win the 72-year battle for women's political, social and legal equality. Presenter Annette Baldwin brings to light the disturbing circumstances and inspiring reponses, delivering moving passages from the speeches of Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony and Alice Paul.
