🥪 History Sandwiched In: Woman's Suffrage

When: Tuesday, May 21, 12:15 PM - 1 PM
Where: Wisconsin Historical Museum, 30 N Carroll St

Hosted by Wisconsin Historical Museum

"From 1915-1920, Ripon-born Carrie Catt led two million women in the National American Woman Suffrage Association to successfully lobby for passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote. Summit, WI native Belle La Follette was a leading suffragette who wrote a pioneering column in La Follette’s Weekly (later renamed The Progressive Magazine) advocating for women’s rights and suffrage, testified before the US Senate Committee on Woman’s Suffrage, and spoke throughout the country for women’s suffrage. Through her efforts, Wisconsin was the first state to ratify the woman suffrage amendment six days after the Senate passed the Susan B. Anthony constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote in 1919.

2019 is the 100th anniversary of many states, including Wisconsin, ratifying the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote. In honor of this anniversary, author and Professor Dr. Bob Kann will share tales of La Follette, Catt, and other amazing stories of the courage, perseverance, and political savvy which enabled three generations of women over a seventy-two year period to successfully agitate to win the vote.

Suggested donation of $3 per person. Feel free to bring your lunch to this lecture series."

OWR-Dane April Assembly - Rural and Urban Together, Kriss Marion

When: Tuesday, May 21, 6:30 PM - 8 PM 
Where: Madison Public Library, 201 W Mifflin St

Hosted by Our Wisconsin Revolution - Dane County

"Bringing rural and urban folks together to work for a government that serves everybody. We all want a good life for our families and friends, if we are united we can overcome the efforts to divide us. This workshop will be part presentation and part brainstorming together.

Kriss Marion is a farmer, business owner, entrepreneur and parent. She cares deeply about Wisconsin and has long been committed to tackling tough issues. She believes we
need a playbook for how to make it happen. She says “I don’t have all the answers, but I could perhaps start by explaining to folks what it is like to be a rural candidate in a gerrymandered district trying to unseat an incumbent. No incumbents lost seats in 2019. Not one. There are a few reasons I can see for that - and the maps are only one piece of the puzzle."


👩🏾 Elect More Moms: A Panel Discussion

When: Wednesday, May 22, 6 PM - 7:30 PM
Where: American Family Insurance - DreamBank, 821 E Washington Ave

"Elect More Moms: Stories, Struggles & Successes from Candidates & Elected Officials

In 2018, journalists reported on the record number of women elected to federal offices. Among them are the "Moms in the House" caucus, a group of 25 women with school-age and young children. These women, who "swapped stories of feeling judged for not hiding their motherhood" ( are among those elected officials and candidates who amplify the discrimination faced by moms running for office. 

Join us for "Elect More Moms: A Panel Discussion" to reflect on the stories, struggles and successes of local candidates mothering young and school-age children. We'll reflect on the questions typically asked of mothers running for office, the importance of representation, and the roles that all women fulfill in diversifying perspectives in government."
