VISION 2020'S TOAST TO TENACITY 2019

Women won the right to vote 99 years ago. Raise your glass to the trailblazers who made it possible.


The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — women's right to vote — became law on August 26, 1920, a date now recognized as Women's Equality Day.

Each year on this date, Vision 2020's Toast to Tenacity honors the suffragists who fought for this right, and urges women to shape the future by exercising their right to vote.

On Women's Equality Day, join Vision 2020 and Drexel's Institute for Women's Health and Leadership in raising a glass of grape juice, just as suffragist Alice Paul did 99 years ago, to celebrate the anniversary of women's right to vote.

Thanks to our event sponsor, Fox Rothschild LLP, this event is free and open to the public, and lunch will be provided.

Women Vote NOW: Honoring Suffragists of Color Who Made a Difference

  • Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Did you know that women in the US did not have the right to vote 100 years ago? On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving the right for women to vote. However, having that right did not achieve access and many Women of color had their voting privileges obstructed or simply did not gain them by statute until much later. 

Did you ever wonder where early suffragists got the idea that women should have the same rights as men?  The Iroquois tribes (Mohawk, Oneida, Seneca) in the area gave women equal rights in their society.

Did you know that a black man rallied about 300 white women, who were attending the first Women’s Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY in July 1848, to fight for their right to vote?  Frederick Douglass, an eloquent speaker, told attendees that if women were involved in the political sphere, the country could turn out to be a better place, and women and African Americans should both have the same rights to vote like white men did. His speech impacted the audience, and the resolution successfully passed.  

Come and find out more:  Women Vote NOW: Honoring Suffragists of Color Who Made a Difference. This event happens on Monday, August 26, beginning at 6:30 at the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation Church at 2315 Division St. NW, Olympia. It is free to the public.

Several community groups* will honor early suffragists of color who worked courageously to support abolition and suffrage. These women of color faced an intersection (race and gender) that was fraught with danger and demanded their courage and brave action.  

The evening will feature video vignettes of several suffragists of color as well as excerpts of their writings/speeches. Speakers include Ava Underwood, Talauna Reed, Dr. Karen Johnson, and Cheryl Wapes’a Mayes.  A summary of important lessons learned from the Suffrage struggle itself will be offered. A Call to Action Packet will be available so educators and youth leaders can access resources to learn more about suffrage.

*Sponsors: NOW of Thurston County, Zonta Club of South Puget Sound, Thurston County League of Women Voters, and Olympia Universal Unitarian Church.

Cocktails & Conversations: How to Flip Unconscious Bias, October 23 from 6:00-8:00pm at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI

This panel will discuss how our social constructs and gender roles are NOT destinies that must be fulfilled. Women and men are responsible for developing positive systems of behavior in such a way that allows men to eradicate toxic behavior and women to free themselves from the confines of gender socialization. Part of this discussion will look at the unconscious bias we develop at a young age, that solidifies toxic behaviors and gender socialization.

Panelists: Siri Chilazi of Harvard University, Shan Mukhtar PhD of Providence College and Stephanie Huckel from IGT and Sandra Victorino from Providence Center.

Moderated by: Susan Bosco and Ame Lambert from RWU

Please take one or more of these surveys before attending the event. The results won't be shared, but you'll have some idea about your own biases that may not have been apparent before. https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html

Hyenas in Petticoats—How Women Struggled Against Every Dirty Trick in the Books to Win the Vote!

  • Burton Barr Central Library-Pulliam Auditorium (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

As we celebrate the 100th birthday of the 19th Amendment in 2020, it’s time to look back at the enormous effort it took for women to be granted full citizenship and the vote. History has downplayed suffrage, as if it were just a footnote in American history, when in fact, it was the nation’s largest civil rights movement. Western women got the vote long before their Eastern sisters, but don’t dare tell an Arizona suffragette that she had it easy. Arizona had its own dirty tricks. Jana exposes it all—the heroines, the heroes and the haters. Presented by Jana Bommersbach.

The program begins with the trailblazers in women’s symphonic history in the United States, beginning with the music Ruth Crawford Seeger, the first female composer to win the Guggenheim Fellowship. We then explore the music of Jennifer Higdon, one of America’s most widely performed composers in 2019, with one of her latest works, Breeze Serenade. Before then exploring the music of three Pulitzer-prize winning composers, Joan Tower, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich and western Massachusetts’s own Caroline Shaw!

The Mary Lyon concerts commemorate the central role of music in Mount Holyoke College's history by celebrating the contributions of women musicians and women in general, through music. The programming therefore gives voice to the often under-represented work of women in music.

Why Do We Know More About Kim Kardashian Than Abigail Adams

Amy Simon is a Mom On A Mission.
When her ten-year-old daughter came home from school one March
stating she was planning on doing her women's history project on Cher, this Writer/Performer/Cultural Herstorian knew something needed to be done.
Drawing on diaries, letters, publications, and biographies and combining theater, history, multimedia, audience interaction, and good old-fashioned story telling, She's History! brings to life the true tales of fabulous females, then and now. Going back and forth from the past to the present, Amy Simon poignantly finds the funny as she chronicles the struggles and accomplishments of our unheralded, unknown and forgotten heroines whose courage and strength inspire her as she raises her two daughters. Watch Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony multi-task just like today's mom - running the house, fixing dinner and corralling the kids, all while working on the Fourteenth Amendment. Hear about our first feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, and listen, as Frances Wright becomes the first woman to speak in public to "promiscuous" audiences. Learn how Alice Paul stole President Wilson's parade, and see how she suffered for the cause. Watch Nancy Pelosi become the First Female Speaker of The House, witness Sojourner Truth's powerful Ain't I A Woman speech and experience Shirley Chisholm's humanity. See what inspired Bella Abzug, Lucretia Mott, Eleanor Roosevelt and Golda Meir. Hear about Lilly Ledbetter and Equal Pay, Victoria Woodhull (the first woman to run for president) and Hillary Clinton, bloomers, suffrage, maternal profiling, the road to Seneca Falls, abolition and more! It's all there in a fast-paced GALA-PALOOZA honoring Female America.

Women's History of the Village

  • 73 Bleecker Street New York, NY, 10012 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Presented by Social Justice Tours

Even before Greenwich Village became known as the center of American Bohemianism, extraordinary women have been making their mark here with art, activism and unconventional living. During its pre-WWI heyday the Village was a magnet for feminists, and it continued to be home to women artists and entrepreneurs throughout the 20th century while also cultivating a thriving lesbian and trans community. This tour explores sites associated with some of the many fascinating women in the neighborhood, some of whom have been largely forgotten but no less played a vital role in creating the legacy of feminism we continue today.

Themes Covered: Free Love, Queer Culture & Struggle, Birth Control, Women's Suffrage, Anti-Racism, Salons & Debate Clubs, Arts & Journalism, Union Organizing, Settlement Houses, Bars & Restaurants

Exhibit Opens: Why Women Organize

Monday, June 10, 2019 - 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.


Registration
Four-Day Educator Institute

June 10-13, 2019- LBJ Presidential Library

$50 per person | Stipend + housing provided

Breakfast + lunch daily | CPE credit opportunity

Women have taken active roles in movements throughout history but are often left out of the traditional narrative. During this four-day educator institute, we will explore women's activism and involvement in various movements throughout modern United States history. And, the timing is fitting. The 99th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote, is this August.

What to Expect

Educators will hear lectures and have conversations with leading experts in the field. Topics to be covered include litigation around social movements with Vanderbilt University Professor Dr. Holly J. McCammon, and feminist social movements, the 1950s to present, with a focus on the response to white feminism by women of color with University of Texas at Austin Professor Dr. Nicole Guidotti-Hernández.

It is our hope that educators will be able to share a more inclusive story of women's roles in movements in their classrooms.

More speakers and institute details to be released soon.

How to Attend

The workshop has a maximum capacity of 40. Please fill out your online application by Friday, March 15. Application requirements include a statement, resume, and a letter of support from your supervisor. All participants will be notified of acceptance by April 1, 2019. Once accepted, there will be a $50 fee to reserve your spot.

Each attendee will receive a $250 stipend. If housing is needed, it can be provided at no charge on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.

“Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins” Screening and Discussion

  • Google Calendar ICS

“Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins” Screening and Discussion

In partnership with The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, the Friends of the LBJ Library will enjoy a screening of RAISE HELL: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins, a new documentary on the life of the legendary Texas political columnist. Joining us for a discussion after the screening will be Dr. Don Carleton, executive director of The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History and a historical advisor for the film; Janice Engel, the film’s director and co-producer; and Dan Rather, journalist featured in the film.


To RSVP


We are not currently accepting reservations. Friends members at the Individual and above level will receive an email invitation about four weeks in advance and may make a reservation at that time.


About the film


With razor-sharp wit, outspoken journalist and firecracker Molly Ivins took on the good-ole-boy corruption in the political establishment. This six-foot, red-haired Texan found joy in reporting as one of the lone liberals in her deep-red state. She feared that the partisan plague would be the death of American democracy. Ivins became the first woman to co-edit the Texas Observer, and among her claims to fame were her searing, comical books on George W. Bush’s temperament and political record—having grown up in the same town with him, she became an accidental expert. Her blistering way with words was feared by the political elite, but her refreshing critique and big heart garnered a die-hard following from around the country.


Though Ivins died from cancer in 2007, filmmaker Janice Engel crafts a highly entertaining watch that radiantly brings Ivins’s repartee and political wisdom back to life. Her messaging and brand of commentary strikes a particular chord in today’s hostile political climate. This film asks us to shake up the system like Molly Ivins would.


All events listed in the calendar are free unless noted.

First: Sandra Day O’Connor, An American Life

When she graduated near the top of her law school class in 1952, no firm would even interview her. But Sandra Day O’Connor’s story is that of a woman who repeatedly shattered glass ceilings—doing so with a blend of grace, wisdom, humor, understatement, and cowgirl toughness. Bestselling author and journalist Evan Thomas has written the authoritative biography of America’s first female Supreme Court justice, based on exclusive interviews and first-time access to Justice O’Connor’s archives. Presidential historian Michael Beschloss will moderate the discussion. A book signing follows the program.

Rightfully Hers, a new exhibit to mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment, will open this year. Rightfully Hers is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M. Freeman Foundation in honor of Virginia Allen Freeman, AARP, AT&T, Ford Motor Company Fund, Facebook, Barbara Lee Family Foundation Fund at the Boston Foundation, Google, HISTORY®, and Jacqueline B. Mars.
