TMC General Meeting
October 3, 2019 @ 5:30 PM - 8:30 PM
General public, members and guests are welcome to join the Thursday Morning Club for the first dinner / program of the new club year. At 5:30 PM a buffet dinner will be served, followed at 7:00 PM by a multimedia presentation entitled, “Reclaiming Our Voice: New Jersey’s Role in the Fight for Woman Suffrage.” Carol Simon Levin will portray Lillian Feickert, president of the New Jersey Woman Suffrage Association from 1912-1920, to tell the story of the role of New Jersey women in the long struggle for woman suffrage. Two hundred and twenty-five years ago, women had the right to vote in only one state-New Jersey-a right they would lose in 1807 and not win back for more than five generations. Hear the stories of nationally known women with Jersey ties including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, as well as others.
Together, these and other women (and their male allies) propelled woman suffrage past reluctant male voters and through state and national legislatures to the final success of the 19th Amendment. Ms. Levin is a retired librarian, author, storyteller and program presenter based in Bedminster, New Jersey.
Ms. Levin’s presentation at 7:00 PM is free and open to the public. To attend the dinner, RSVP by Friday, September 27 to the Madison Community House, 973-377-0244, and leave a name, phone number and message. The cost of the dinner is $20 payable at the door.
