WOMEN’S EXHIBIT SPEAKER SERIES

Songs and Stories from the Great Women's Movement in Champaign-Urbana, 1973-1983.

Champaign-Urbana was home of great activism and activity on behalf of women's rights in the decade between 1973-1983. There were ERA rallies, a rape crisis center, a women's escort service to take women home safely after parties and events, and groups from the Abortion Rights Coalition to Gay Illini to Housewives for ERA. Kristin Lems, singer-songwriter and founder of the National Women's Music Festival, will share songs and stories from those days along with precious (to her!) artifacts including t-shirts, posters, and buttons. Be sure to visit our special exhibit, How Long Must Women Wait? Woman Suffrage and Women’s Rights in Champaign County, and learn about this era and other leading ladies in history!

The Glen Ellyn Historical Society had a great afternoon today presenting Kristin Lems in a Joyful Musical Tribute to Women's History: A Celebration of Women's History Month: The Once and Future Woman! The audience of all women and two men clapped and clapped at the inspiring songs Lems sang. An entire Red Hat organization attended and posed for a photo.
