‘The Suffragette’ to be presented at library

EAST DUNDEE – Dundee Township Historical Society members will present “The Suffragette” at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Dundee Township Library, 555 Barrington Ave.

“The Suffragette” is the story of generations of women who fought for the right to vote. The campaign lasted for 72 years before suffrage was granted to the American woman.

The pioneers of the movement, who blazed the trail for future generations, did not live to see the victory but their names have gone down in history.

For information or to make a reservation, call the library at 847-428-3661.
