BELVA LOCKWOOD FOR PRESIDENT
CAMPAIGN RALLY TEA PARTY
Ann Barrett as the First Woman Presidential Candidate
Space is limited! Purchase your ticket today!
A woman president? Why not? After all, it’s 1884! Meet the indomitable Belva Ann Lockwood: American attorney, politician, educator and author, and the first woman to run a full national presidential campaign. She once said, “I cannot vote but I can be voted for.”
Enjoy afternoon tea while you listen to her lively campaign speech, detailing her early struggles to break free of social conventions, her fight to be admitted to the Supreme Court bar, and her bid for the presidency representing the newly formed Equal Rights Party. Look through her scrapbook of mementos and listen to her sing songs of suffrage advocates.
Thanks to the formidable re-enactor Anne Barrett, you’ll be able to spend a few hours with a truly remarkable woman who worked alongside Susan B. Anthony and other suffragists and fought for women’s rights…and the highest seat in government office. While she only received 4,194 votes, she helped change the nation.
