An EqualiTEA Party:

Featuring Suffragist and Congresswoman Jeanette Rankin

Storyteller, Megan Wells, portrays Jeanette Rankin, the first woman to hold federal office and an active organizer of suffragists in the early twentieth century.

On Building a Sidewalk...

Jeannette Rankin picked up a hammer in her early teens to build a sidewalk.  Not afraid of work or limited by ideas of “men’s versus women’s work,” Jeannette devoted her life to equality.  Tenacity and courage shaped her decisions.  What is a woman’s place?  Equal to a man.  Jeannette believed, “The dysfunction in our government results from a lack of women’s participation.” 

Join us for tea and pastries being served before the presentation in the Belvedere Room at Clarendale of Algonquin, 2001 Algonquin Rd, Algonquin, IL to commemorate the 100th-anniversary of women getting the vote.
