Just got an email from Marshall Terrill at ASU downtown Phoenix campus. He is announcing a new lecture series hailing the role of woman in Arizona Politics. The program is called Women and Politics in Arizona.
The humanities lecture series will be kicked off by ASU faculty associate and author, Heidi Osselaer. Osselaer is in the Department of History at ASU and wrote “Wining Their Place: Arizona Women in Politics 1883-1950. Here is a little quote from her about the lecture:
When you read Arizona history, women in state politics are typically left out of the picture and history books are just now starting to tell the true story. What I have found is that women have been a leading light and have played important roles in Arizona state level politics. From the time women have gained the right to vote in 1912 until the present, this has been a constant theme.

We want to thank ASU downtown Phoenix for offering programs like this to the public. Your commitment to sharing knowledge adds much to the intelligence and vitality of the downtown region.
