The Auglaize County Historical Society and Riverside Arts Center will present “The Struggle for Suffrage” with Pamela Machuga at 7 pm on Monday, April 12, on the Historical Society’s Facebook page. The program is free and open to the public and is presented in conjunction with the Ohio History Connection’s traveling exhibit, “OHIO WOMEN VOTE: 100 Years of Change,” on display at the Art Center from April 7 to May 1.
The struggle for suffrage was a long grueling battle fought by every day women, some of whom became legend, and others whose names were lost to history. Since the passage of the 19th Amendment women have continued to work for equity and inclusion. Join Cuyahoga Valley National Park Ranger Pamela Machuga to explore the quest for suffrage and to re-discover the women who have dedicated their lives to breaking down barriers and building bridges for the next generation.
To access the event, simply go to the Auglaize County Historical Society’s Facebook page (also accessible via https://www.facebook.com/AuglaizeCountyHistory ) a little before 7pm on April 12. The program will appear as the most current post on the page. Make sure you adjust your volume (on the screen), if needed.
Curated by the Ohio History Connection, “OHIO WOMEN VOTE” appears at Riverside Art Center, 3 West Auglaize Street, throughout April. The exhibit is free and open to the public. Riverside Art Center’s operating hours are Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from noon to 4 pm, and Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm.
