When setting goals for 1914, the National Equal Suffrage Association called for rallies, participation in parades across the country, and suggested that the local Equal Suffrage Associations take over their local newspaper for a day, promoting their cause. Members of the local groups could then hit the streets and sell extra copies of the edition as a fundraiser.
So the Grand Rapids Equal Suffrage Association edited and produced the May 2, 1914 edition of the
Grand Rapids Press.
Join us to hear all about the women involved, the articles they wrote for it, the events of the 1914 National Suffrage Day, and how the work of West Michigan women fit into the national movement.
