Women Unite and Men, too!
Come join us for a day of Centennial Celebration and a Tribute to Women who won the Right to Vote in 1919.

Details of
The Day:

SITU’s 2019 Summer Event will be a day of Celebration, Music and Conversation! This year we celebrate the Centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and Women’s Right to Vote in the United States of America. 

Women’s voices and influence have always been a part of Washington State’s history, even without the vote. The fight for permanent woman’s suffrage in Washington State, however, spanned over 50 years in territorial and state history. Washington was the first state in the 20th century and the fifth state in the Union to enact women’s suffrage.  Washington women’s success in 1910 helped inspire the campaign that culminated in passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, in which women won the right to vote nationally.

SITU is fortunate to have The Seattle Mandolin Orchestra presenting a special selection of music that is specific to the time of the Women’s Suffrage Movement.  Please join us for a lovely afternoon with live mandolin music, historical presentation, visiting, and activities in one of Seattle most prestigious parks.
