Margot McMillen - The Golden Lane: How Missouri Women Gained the Vote and Changed History
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, February 15 in observance of Presidents' Day.
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.
