Common Ground Virtual Discussion: Women & Politics

July 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Common Ground Virtual Discussion: Women and Politics

​The Western Reserve Historical Society is proud to once again be a part of Common Ground, the Cleveland Foundation’s community-wide initiative to inspire connection, build community, and create positive change. This year, we will be presenting a virtual Fred Walk program based on our new exhibit, Women & Politics​, where guests will first learn about the historic struggle for voting rights and then discuss the issues faced by voters today.

Be among the first to get a sneak peek of the brand-new virtual version of our upcoming exhibit, Women & Politics, as our experts guide you through the story of women’s empowerment, from the early days of the suffragist movement to the election of northern Ohio women to positions of power on the local, state and national levels.​ After a brief introduction, participants will be split into one of three groups, where you will dive deeper into parts of our virtual exhibit to answer a thought-provoking discussion question with your group. Finally, you will come back together to share what you have learned and explore the resources available to those wishing to make change within their community. Sign up for FREE here.

Registration is free but required. To register, click here​. This event will be held through the Zoom platform. When you register, we will email you a link that will allow you to join, as well as all necessary login information and instructions.
