Constance Mixon, associate professor of political science and director of the urban studies program at Elmhurst College, will open a celebration of Women’s Equality Day that will be held on Wednesday, August 26, by the Elmhurst League of Women Voters.
August 26 of 2015 will mark the 95th anniversary of one of the greatest victories in the women’s rights movement—ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Elmhurst League of Women Voters will recognize and celebrate Women’s Equality Day with a Drinks & Dialogue event from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on the patio of Flight 112, at 110 W. Park Ave. in Elmhurst.
Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend and to participate. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
Drinks & Dialogue is a new initiative by the Elmhurst League of Women Voters, and provides opportunities for people to share opinions and ideas, ask questions, and become more aware of local, state and national issues and ways to make change.
The League of Women Voters is an issues-oriented, volunteer, member-directed organization that neither supports nor opposes political candidates or parties. It is committed to open, responsive and effective government brought about by informed, involved citizens with membership open to both men and women. For more information, visit www.lwvelmhurst.org.
