Judy Sutton reviews the history of Women's Suffrage in the United States

In this presentation, a partnership with the Heinz History Center, Judy Sutton reviews the history of Women's Suffrage in the United States and the women who organized and promoted the suffrage movement in Pittsburgh. The presentation coincides with the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Nineteenth Amendment. Originally slated for March, during Women's History Month, this event has now been moved to June 18. It is currently planned to be broadcast via Zoom, and on our Facebook feed.

Judith Sutton worked as a Children's Librarian for over thirty years. She graduated from Duquesne University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and received her Master of Library Science degree from the University of Pittsburgh.   Since her retirement, she has become a Docent and an Ambassador for the Heinz History Center and the Historical Society of Mt. Lebanon. Judy has logged over 1,600 volunteer hours for the Heinz History Center and greatly enjoys sharing her love of history with people all ages. Over the last several years she has become an expert at delivering the History Center’s lecture on “First Ladies of Western Pennsylvania” chronicling various women of the region who were first in their respective fields. Judy was an invaluable research member of the Volunteer Ambassador Program Jazz Committee, a narrator and program presenter of “Steel City Grooves: Celebrating Jazz in Western Pennsylvania”.
