Chicago Women Activists
A Virtual Program hosted by Lynn Osmond, CEO, Chicago Architecture Center

Chicago’s 19th century history typically focuses on—and has been told by—middle-and upper-class white men credited with building businesses that fueled the city’s rapid growth. Less well-known and recognized are the women who helped build Chicago, whether alongside these men or, more often, independently. Some aimed to advance civic and social reforms, others advocated for more livable housing, and many worked to secure the right to vote. Hear the stories of Chicago women activists and learn what reforms they led, particularly on Chicago’s Near South Side, during this virtual program led by Chicago Architecture Center docent Ellen Shubart.

Pre-registration is requested and guests are welcome; register by August 30th.
