The Historical Society of Michigan presents “Votes for Women: A Century of Suffrage” with author Elizabeth Ann Homer as part of History Hounds™ Lecture Series. The program will be viewable via teleconference at Northern Michigan University's Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center.
Homer will cover the women and men who won universal suffrage in the United States, the important figures who composed the pro-suffrage coalition and the people who opposed their mission. The free event is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 10 in 165 Gries Hall.
Homer has been a curator for over 20 years in Lansing, first at the Michigan Women's Historical Center and Hall of Fame and then at the Turner-Dodge House & Historical Center. She is a public historian with a passion for women's history and political history.
