WE’RE GETTING READY FOR THE 2020 VOTES FOR WOMEN CENTENNIAL
There are so many programs and special events planned for 2020 that it’s best to refer Americans to the event listings with the Votes for Women Centennial. Meanwhile, the planning continues.
Work is in progress for a musical about the first wave of the women’s rights movement that’s loosely defined as from 1848 to 1920. And 2020 is the anniversary of US women voting for 100 years. There are still serious kinks to be worked out, in addition to complications caused by gerrymandering and other serious issues.
CREATIVE PROGRAMMING IS BEING FEATURED FOR 2020
Shaina Taub calls her musical work in progress “The Suffragists,” and some of the songs from this upcoming production were introduced at the 75th anniversary of the Schlesinger Library at Harvard University last year. The musical focuses on the latter part of the movement for voting rights—the relationship between Alice Paul and Carrie Chapman Catt that point up Paul’s “idealism” and Catt’s “practicality” and their relationship to other groups adding to tensions within the movement, a decentralized and often fragmented campaign now being recognized in the 2020 votes for women centennial.
