The 1917 group song marks a pivotal turning point in the century long struggle for liberty leading to the 19th amendment, which established women’s right to vote in the U.S. It also tells a unique story about the women’s suffrage movement, which is the first successful nonviolent campaign for social change in U.S. history. We will record the sing-a-long and this “seed recording” will serve as a foundation for future components of the living monument that includes inviting elected officials and the general public to add their voice to the sing-a-long.
In addition to songs, women used other tactics such as wearing newspaper hats at parades. Inspired by this, we will make newspaper hats and historical feathers that speak to the history of liberty.
