"Time for Women" about notable women and suffragists from SE MN and St. Paul.

Unknown and fascinating stories from 1870-1920: the hunger striker, black and indigenous suffragists, Civil war nurses, abolitionists! 


Performed by History Alive! Lanesboro, MN

History is ‘herstory’ in “Time for Women, 150 Years of Leadership”, an original play about strong, notable women and suffragists in SE Minnesota and St. Paul. Through two scenes encompassing 1870-1970, audiences will witness the many stories of struggle for women’s civil and voting rights. Beginning in post-Civil War Minnesota, they will meet: Red Wing’s own Julia Nelson- abolitionist, Nellie Mattson Jaeger- suffragist, and Good Star Woman- war survivor. Also the rare 1870 businesswomen,  Nellie Francis- founder of  black suffrage group, indigenous lawyer Marie Bottineau Baldwin, and Bertha Moller-one of MN’s force-fed suffragists.  The show also celebrates the centennial of indigenous suffrage in 2024 and some of women’s struggles of the 1970s. History Alive Lanesboro invites audiences to take part in a suffrage parade between the two scenes of the show. The show ends with a discussion led by League of Women Voters members.
