Join Marla Matkin, popular first person historical performer, as she commemorates women’s suffrage at the Smoky Hill Museum. She’ll focus on the movement’s history from 1848 to 1920 through three brief, informative and poignant first-person accounts. Meet Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt and a woman who represents all of those who marched, suffered and sacrified. She’ll discuss both sides of the issue, share tactics used and the part played by western women.

Matkin has been a living historian and an independent scholar for nearly twenty-five years, traveling throughout the Midwest and West to enlighten, entertain and inspire.
