Singer and historian Linda Radtke, in period garb and “Votes for Women” sash, celebrates the centennial of the passage of the 19th amendment, specifically highlighting the decades-long persistence of Vermonters, both women and men. The songs and stories in Radtke’s engaging presentation, accompanied by pianist Cameron Steinmetz, highlight Vermonters’ efforts for total enfranchisement from 1840-1921 as they lobbied in churches, at “parlor meetings” at town halls, and at the State House.
