2019 Events, Activities and Joint Efforts

Sue Shelton White gave an important speech as principal speaker at an equal rights pageant in 1923, which was then being held to celebrate the first women's rights convention 75 years before, in 1848.

With these words she inspired her fellow suffragists to action as she asked:

 

“How much do you value that which has been accomplished for women in the past 75 years? How precious to your little daughter is the heritage that is hers? How much do you desire that the yolk shall be entirely lifted? Women must be freed of their subjection whatever the cost. What you can give here today will measure the length of the next step to be taken and (will) register your individual response to the appeal of women for unhampered lives.”
