Concert Band - Let Woman Choose Her Sphere

  1. Wednesday December 8 8:00pm
Hill Auditorium

This concert by the University Concert Band with special guest speakers, singers, and composers utilizes the centenary of the ratification of the 19th amendment as an opportunity to showcase the broader fight for equality throughout this country’s history to the present day. It is well known that only white women gained the right to vote in 1920, and the fight for truly universal suffrage continued in earnest for decades. But suffrage alone is not enough, and the fight for equality in all areas of public and private life continues. We celebrate the voices of those who have stood up and spoken out for rights in America. From Jane Adams to Janet Mock, this event is for ALL.
