YWCA Metropolitan Chicago’s Leader Luncheon: Progress, Power & Possibilities

  • Hyatt Regency Chicago Grand Ballroom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

In 1920, the ratification of the 19th Amendment granted women the right to vote and participate fully in our democracy, however, the YWCA recognizes that women of color were often prevented from exercising this right until the passage of the Voting Rights Act and voting rights amendments nearly 50 years later. Throughout the year 2020, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago will celebrate the one hundredth anniversary of the 19th Amendment and the contributions of all women suffragists to its historic passage.

 YWCA Metropolitan Chicago is proud to have been at the forefront of progress and the advancement of gender and racial equality throughout the past 100 years. On November 19, 2020, we will honor five outstanding leaders who have contributed to the immense social and political strides that have enabled women today to sit in more power than ever before. As we look ahead to the possibilities that remain, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago continues to advance our mission of eliminating racism and empowering women through advocacy and innovative 21st century solutions that support women and families in achieving personal and financial empowerment.

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.

Mary Lyon Concert: 100 Years of Women’s Suffrage

  • Abbey Memorial Chapel, Mount Holyoke College (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.

Selling Suffrage: Words and Symbols to Win the Vote and the ERA

Powerful arguments and compelling visual images were essential in convincing the American public to support votes for women. In many cases the suffragists had to create their own.The need to "sell" the Equal Rights Amendment has also faced communication challenges. Come hear experts and advocates describe the written and graphic messages that suffragists used to change public opinion, and learn how those messages connect to later campaigns for the Equal Rights Amendment.

Dr. Ann Burnette, Associate Professor of Communication Studies at Texas State University, will describe the different types of arguments used by the suffragists.

Edith P. Mayo, Curator Emeritus of Political History, Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, will showcase the range of visual images created and deployed.

Julia Tanner, President, Virginia Equal Rights Coalition, will cover communication strategies of the ERA movement over time.

The panel will be moderated by Nancy Tate, former Executive Director, League of Women Voters of the United States.

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.

VISION 2020'S TOAST TO TENACITY 2019

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.
