‘American Women’

Robyn Muncy, associate professor of history at the University of Maryland, lectures about the beginning of the women’s rights movement, from the work of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in the mid-1800s to the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920. Muncy will be joined by historic reenactor and Fairfax County history commissioner Lynn Garvey Hodge, who will portray Mrs. Robert Walker, a Maryland-based suffragist and Quaker who was arrested at the White House on July 14, 1917, and served time at the Occoquan Workhouse. The lecture, “American Women: The Long and Winding Road,” is the first in a five-part series hosted by the Workhouse Arts Center.

7:30 p.m. Workhouse Arts Center, 9601 Ox Rd., Lorton. 703-584-2900. Free, but $10 donation suggested.
