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!

Benefit for Woodstock Folk Festival
