"Shatter The Silence"
February 2, 2014 at 12pm
Holton Hall Room 206

Shatter the Silence Lunch Hour is named in recognition of the cultural norms that encourage individuals to stay silent about the issues of sexual violence. Kansas State University, has and always will, place the safety of its students as a top priority. Silence will never be an acceptable response to sexual violence in the K-State community and these lunch hours are a reflection of that standard. Attendees will be able to speak with the CARE coordinators at each meeting, provide feedback on the meeting's topic and voice concerns. Shatter the Silence Lunch Hour is a forum for community dialogue on the first Monday of every month. The lunch hour will be in the CARE office, 206 Holton Hall, and provide a safe and affirming place for any community member who would like to be part of the conversations happening about sexual violence on college campuses.

Women's Studies Advisory Board Dinner/Lecture
"Woman Suffrage: the First Campaign, Kansas 1867 - Learn the Story, Remember it, Teach it"
By Jan Dreiling
Thursday, March 5, 2015 6pm
Manhattan Country Club 

With the aid of the 1867 photographs of Alexander Gardner and the political cartoons of the times, Dreiling will tell the story of the first campaign for woman suffrage in the United States, the obstacles and the outcomes.  She will tell about the proponents who traveled from the East to convince the voters (the male voters!) to make Kansas the first state where women could vote – Lucy Stone and husband, Henry Blackwell, Olympia Brown, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.  She will tell about the Kansas advocates of woman suffrage – Samuel Wood, Charles Robinson, and Clarina Howard Nichols.  She will tell of their optimism, their courage and their betrayal.  She will tell you why this story should never be forgotten. DINNER COST IS $45 AND RSVP IS REQUIRED BY FEBRUARY 27, 2015 AT 5PM. Contact Kim Garver at 785-532-5738 for more details.

Why You Don't Know about Woman Suffrage and What You Need to Know"
By Jan Dreiling 
Friday, March 6, 2015 10:30am
Hale Library Hemisphere Room

Through the use of political cartoons of the 19th century, Dreiling will present the obstacles faced by early proponents of woman suffrage when women first began asking that the voting privilege be extended to them in 1848.  Dreiling will discuss the reality of what was known as “woman’s sphere,” including the limited right of women to freedom of speech, the exclusion of women from higher education and most professions, the limited job opportunities of women, and the absence of married women’s legal rights. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
