Women’s Equality Day

The Legacy Of Belva Lockwood

August 26, 2021

Live theater brings to life the remarkable career of Belva Lockwood, one of the nation’s first female attorneys and the first woman allowed to practice at the bar of the US Supreme Court. In 1884, she became the first woman to earn votes in her campaign for the US Presidency.

This program is made possible with public funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and administered by The Earlville Opera House.
