Celebrating Women's Suffrage
Saturday, August 15 | 10 AM - 2 PM
Join the Pioneer Village Museum in celebrating 100 years of women's suffrage with a special event on Saturday, August 15th! We'll make signs and sashes, enjoy lunch, play croquet and more. Also, the Pioneer Village is hosting special guest re-enactor Jessica Michna as Eleanor Roosevelt, a presentation you don't want to miss.
Eleanor Roosevelt shares with the audience her tragedies and triumphs. Born into the opulent wealth of America’s “Golden Age” she would grow from the shy, homely orphan into a confident, driven woman. Annealed by personal tragedy, she would emerge as a champion of civil rights, author, and stateswoman. She is best summed up by President Harry S. Truman, who dubbed her “The First Lady of the World.”
