On Wednesday, October 14th, 7:00 pm, join Michigan Capitol Historian Valerie Marvin for “A Woman’s Place Is Under the Dome: Michigan’s Capitol and the Woman’s Suffrage Movement”! Join this program to relive important suffrage moments under Michigan’s dome, where you will also find Grand Rapids women lobbying and finally, in 1921, sitting in the state senate. The fight for woman’s suffrage began in Michigan in 1846, when woman’s rights advocate Ernestine Rose gave two speeches in Michigan’s first Capitol.
