I Now Pronounce You Lucy Stone, a one-woman performance by and with Judith Kalaora, founder and artistic director of History At Play. Lucy Stone was the first women from Massachusetts to earn a college degree, a fierce abolitionist, and women’s rights activist. Challenging discrimination is not easy, but Lucy Stone is never one to take the easy road. Even Susan B. Anthony credited Lucy Stone for her involvement in the tumultuous women’s rights movement. The fight for suffrage is ferocious, so come along for the ride!
This performance is part of Ridgefield’s Votes for Women series, which explores the history of the women suffrage movement and celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment. There will be a whole year of programs including exhibits, theatrical and musical performances, field trips, discussions, film screenings, and more to commemorate this special anniversary.

The Votes for Women series is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Ridgefield, Ridgefield Library, Ridgefield Historical Society, Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center and Drum Hill Chapter of the DAR.
