Langhorne Council for the Arts invites you to spend an afternoon with a champion of women’s rights, Carrie Chapman Catt, on Sunday, August 14th, 2:00pm, at Middletown Friends Meetinghouse, 453 W. Maple Avenue, Langhorne.
Actress Pat Jordan will bring to life Catt, who founded the League of Women Voters in 1920 and helped lead the fight to ratify the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. Mrs. Catt was the women’s rights dynamo who succeeded Susan B. Anthony as head of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. She was featured on the cover of Time, inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame, and received the American Hebrew Medal. In 2016 a statue was dedicated to her and other suffragists in Nashville, TN, the state that cast the deciding vote for the 19th Amendment 102 years ago.
Learn of Carrie’s sense of justice, her will to create change, and the sense of humor that contributed to her reputation as a public speaker and popular leader. She never feared defeat and didn’t hesitate to speak out for equality and justice. Her leadership of the woman suffrage mainstream organization will inspire modern audiences just as she inspired its two million members in a steady fight that took 72 years to accomplish.
Tea and sweets will be served as you enjoy this theatrical performance. Proceeds benefit the LCA Women’s Mural Project. Tickets are required; advance purchase is recommended.
