Up next on Zoom: Edith Wilmans on her Campaign Tour
On this important anniversary of women’s suffrage, Pollyanna invites our young patrons to celebrate Texas women who left their mark on our collective political history.
The year is 1926 and two women are running for Texas governor: Miriam "Ma" Ferguson and Edith Wilmans. You are invited to attend a rally where you'll meet Edith Wilmans. As the first woman elected to the Texas State Legislature, Edith has a lot to say about politics and women's suffrage. Learn about the history of women voting in Texas, important issues in the 1920s and why political representation matters.
Come prepared to share what issues are important to you -- Edith wants to hear them!
Celebrate women’s suffrage! Parents will be sent information to help children prepare for their exchange in role with Edith, costumes and props encouraged as the audience enters the Texas of the 1920s.
Recommended for young audience members ages 8 – 12.
Presented live on Zoom – 55 minutes
October 25 and November 1 at 2:00 p.m. CST
