Women’s Equality Day Open House: “A Day of Music, Story, and Song”

August 26, 2018

Sunday, August 26, 10am-5pm

free admission

On August 26, 1920, the 19th amendment was signed into law, establishing women’s right to vote in the Constitution. Today, August 26 is celebrated and remembered each year as Women’s Equality Day.

Join us at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument as we commemorate Women’s Equality Day 2018 with “A Day of Music, Story, and Song,” featuring Better Said Than Done Storytellers, a cappella social justice group SongRise, women’s chorus Capital Harmonia, concert pianists from the Pitch Pipe Foundation, and more. Ranger Talks in the galleries of the Monument, including discussions on race in the suffrage movement, the history of the ERA, and women’s representation in the Star Trek franchise, will be held throughout the day. And even more fun for the whole family: join a Ranger on a walking tour of the 1913 parade route, or color a political cartoon and earn a badge by completing the Junior Suffragist program.
