Friends of Susan B. Anthony to celebrate Women’s Equality Day 2017

The Friends of Susan B. Anthony will celebrate Women’s Equality Day with their annual festive luncheon on Saturday, Aug. 26.

This event, which began as an informal birthday party for Susan B. Anthony over forty years ago, is now held in conjunction with the anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote.

Each year a local woman is recognized who exemplifies the spirit of Susan B. Anthony. This year, Kathy Kidder will be honored for her contribution to civic education and role as president and membership chair of the League of Women Voters.

The featured speaker will be Dr. Rebecca Nagy, Director of the Harn Museum of Art. She will be talking about “Commanding Center Stage: Women in American Art Museums Today “ and will explore the progress women have made in being represented in museum collections and assuming directorial positions.

The luncheon will be held at the Best Western Gateway Grand at 11:30 a.m., and will cost $25 for an adult.
