Come celebrate women’s history month with the Interagency Committee for Change by Women and the Montana Historical Society as they host Mary Jane Bradbury's first-person presentation of Jeannette Rankin.
Humanitarian, pacifist, and tireless advocate for social reform, Jeannette Rankin was the first woman elected to U.S. Congress, and the only member of Congress to vote against U.S. entry into both world wars. Hear about her journey from grass roots suffragist to being the first woman to participate in United State government. Hear in her own words her views on equality and government reform - words that ring true today.
Join us as gifted storyteller Mary Jane brings Jeannette Rankin’s story to life!
Light refreshments will be provided.
Located in the auditorium.
