WOMEN’S EQUALITY DAY: A celebration of Women’s Equality Day will be held Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at Mahoning Avenue Women’s Park in Warren to mark the 101st anniversary of women’s suffrage. The free event will begin behind City Hall at the kiosk where the Women’s Committee will be in period dress and carry signs and banners of the Women’s Suffrage Movement. Women will march from City Hall to Women’s Park. The committee invites all women in period costume who wish to parade in the procession and participate in the event.
The program starts at noon with the theme “Valiant women of the vote” to mark when women won the vote on August 26, 1920, when Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby certified the passage of the 19th Amendment. The program will also honor Harriet Taylor Upton, who was Warren’s national celebrity at the turn of the 20th century.
Because of his familiarity with Washington, Upton was a natural to represent the cause of women’s suffrage. Her friends will also be recognized as well as the many organizations she has been able to start. Refreshments will be served after the program.
There is also an exhibit at the entrance to the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library showcasing the historic day.
