Mundelein’s Kirk Players Invites Residents to Celebrate “Votes for Women”

Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of women’s right to vote by attending one of the Kirk Players’ special events during this month, January 2020!

In 1920, the ratification of the nineteenth amendment of the U.S. Constitution granted the right to vote to all U.S. citizens regardless of their sex. To honor this historic event, Kirk Players will present the popular suffrage play, “A Woman’s Influence” by Gertrude Jennings. Written in 1909 during the height of the movement, the play explores the topic of conditions for women working in factories and the interesting relationships between men and women during the struggle.

The Kirk Players main event, “Votes for Women Celebration” will take place on Sunday, January 26, 2020 at 2 p.m. at Innovation Park - The Stage, 1950 Innovation Way, West Building in Libertyville.

Anthony, special speaker Lake County Treasurer Holly Kim, as well as the historical one-act play, “A Woman’s Influence.” There will be refreshments, raffles and much more!
