ONE WOMAN, ONE VOTE

pbs

The Lake County Women’s Coalition invites you to a free showing of “One Woman, One Vote.” This PBS documentary brings to life through actual photographs and period music the 70-year battle for woman suffrage that finally culminated in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution.


The program is FREE and open to the public but registration is required with the library.
Please go to www.wnpl.info and then click on “Calendar,” look for August 23; or call the
library at 847-244-5150.


This documentary, narrated by Susan Sarandon, brings viewers in to the spirit of the suffrage movement and puts the movement into a culturally, historically, politically and socially specific context of the United States in the latter half of the 19thCentury into the early 20thCentury.

TIME:             Doors open at 6:00. Film will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.

Dear Lake County Women's Coalition,

My final class at the College of Lake County wrapped up at the end of July and last week I received my Associate in Arts degree.

As a 2013-14 recipient of the Lake County Women’s Coalition Scholarship, I hope to share this update with its members. Along the way, the daily duties weighing upon me and fellow mature students can make our educational goals seem out of reach. These scholarships mean more than dollars — they offer encouragement that helps us push forward when we want to stop. Please send my thanks to the membership, again, for doing that for me.

I am now two weeks into Southern Illinois University’s Workplace Education and Development program and looking forward to receiving my Bachelor of Science!

Have a wonderful day.

Tracy Castro
