“Beyond the 19th Amendment”
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote. We have chosen to entitle our commemoration of this centennial “Beyond the 19th Amendment.”
In honor of the narrative of women’s suffrage we are excited to bring you a panel of extraordinary women, who have not only shattered glass ceilings, but have broken barriers of ethnicity, geographic region and economic class as well.
Their stories woven together build a tapestry of their successes and failures, turning weakness into strengths, and building bridges and collaborations as they persevered in their respective industries.
These stories are not unlike the City of Lorain itself -A city that has seen its fair share of success and failures, growth and rebirth. Yet through the efforts of those who work to break barriers it continues to be the vibrant, diverse city we are proud to call home.
