March 14 - The Fifth Star: Ohio's Fight for Women's Right to Vote

Dr. Jamie Capuzza will present a 45-minute illustrated program on Thursday, March 14 at 7:15 p.m. at Kendal about Ohio's contributions to the historic women's suffrage movement. The presentation will draw from her 2023 book, with the same name as this program. The title was inspired by Ohio being the fifth state to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment. Highlights of the program will include pivotal state conventions, leaders of the movement, and the perseverance the movement required. Be sure to listen for some Oberlin connections as well. Dr. Capuzza is a professor in the Department of Literature and Communication Arts at the University of Mount Union in Ohio.

We are delighted to be back at Kendal at Oberlin for this program and appreciate being able to use the Heiser Auditorium. The program is free and open to all, including individuals who do not live at Kendal. Address: Kendal at Oberlin - 600 Kendal Drive. Feel free to contact the Heritage Center for specific directions if you have not visited Kendal before.
