HITCH YOUR WAGON TO A STAR
A Dramatic Reading From the Life of May Arkwright Hutton

Written and performed by Meg Bowman

5:00 p.m. - Potluck Supper
6:00 p.m. - Program
Free and open to all

May Arkwright Hutton (1860-1915) was the most flamboyant and outspoken suffragette in early Pacific Northwest history. An independent businesswoman -- though she was born in poverty -- and one of the most eccentric political figures of her time, Hutton was a strong supporter of unions, orphanages, and the Democratic party. She was a leader in the women's suffrage movement in the Northwest, helping to gain voting rights for women in Idaho and in Washington State, and was herself a candidate to be a U.S. Senator from Washington.

Meg Bowman is a lifelong activist in the feminist, civil rights, and humanist movements, a retired Professor of Sociology at San Jose State University, and the author of eleven books. Her latest book, _Four Women_, dramatizes the lives of influential and interesting women leaders from around the world, including May Arkwright Hutton.

Co-sponsored by Peninsula Peace and Justice Center and Women's International League for Peace and Freedom - Peninsula Branch.
