Women’s Commission: ‘Votes for Women Program’

Tuesday, 04 October, 2016

The SLU Women’s Commission is celebrating 100 years since “The Golden Parade” is St. Louis, when 3,000 suffragists descended upon the city to promote “Votes for Women.” A lot has changed for women in politics in the last century, but women continue to have a complicated relationship with politics.

The Women’s Commission will host the current treasurer of St. Louis and SLU alumna, Tishaura Jones, to speak about her experience as a woman in politics, while members of Saint Louis University faculty will provide a historical reference to women’s evolving role in politics.

The event will take place at 3 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 4, in Boileau Hall.
