Celebrating the historic centennial of women’s suffrage and the growing presence of women in public office, both locally and nationally, the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will feature a talk entitled, Women in Office and the 19th Amendment, by Connecticut’s Secretary of the State Denise W. Merrill.
This talk will discuss her inspiring story and challenges she encountered along the way; underrepresentation and how it affects women and women’s rights; voter turnout and where women stand, from millennials to retirees. Secretary Merrill will also address current and future plans to celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment. Secretary Merrill’s talk will be followed by a self-guided tour of the museum’s featured exhibition, From Corsets to Suffrage: Victorian Women Trailblazers, as well as tea and light refreshments.
(Includes tea, light refreshments, and a self-guided tour of the museum's featured exhibition)
