Women's Equality Day

Friday, August 26th is Women’s Equality Day which celebrates the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote.
On Thursday evening from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m, the Wisconsin Women’s Network will host a celebration at the Capitol in the Senate Parlor. Their special guest is Genevieve G. McBride, incoming director of UW Milwaukee’s Women’s Studies Department and author of the anthology, Women’s Wisconsin: From Native Matriarchies to the New Millennium.
I’m pleased that an article that I wrote on the history of prostitution in Eau Claire will be included in the Women’s Wisconsin anthology.
