Margot McMillen - The Golden Lane: How Missouri Women Gained the Vote and Changed History
All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.
Margot McMillen, author of The Golden Lane, explores how a protest by thousands of women at the 1916 Democratic National Convention in St. Louis changed minds and helped make voting rights for women a reality. Her presentation coincides with Women’s Empowerment Week.
McMillen is an adjunct instructor of English at Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, and farms in rural Callaway County.
This event is co-sponsored by the Missouri Women’s Leadership Coalition, the Greater Kansas City Women's Political Caucus, and The League of Women Voters: Kansas City, Jackson County, Platte County.
