Langhorne Council for the Arts invites the public to spend an afternoon with a champion of women’s rights on Sunday, Aug. 14, at 2 p.m. at Middletown Friends Meetinghouse.
Actress Pat Jordan brings to life Carrie Chapman Catt, who founded the League of Women Voters in 1920 and helped lead the fight to ratify the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. Catt succeeded Susan B. Anthony as head of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. She was featured on the cover of Time, inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame and received the American Hebrew Medal. In 2016, a statue was dedicated to her and other suffragists in Nashville, Tennessee – the state that cast the deciding vote for the 19th Amendment 102 years ago.
