Takeover! Local Suffragists and the 1914 Grand Rapids Press

Tuesday, February 4, 2020

When setting goals for 1914, the National Equal Suffrage Association called for rallies, participation in parades across the country and suggested that the Equal Suffrage Associations take over their local newspaper for a day to argue for the cause. The Grand Rapids Equal Suffrage Association met this challenge by editing and producing the May 2, 1914 edition of the Grand Rapids Press. Ruth VanStee will talk about this edition, the local women involved and how the work of the Grand Rapids women fit into the national movement. For adults.
