Arts in brief for Friday, March 13.

Suffragettes come to life at CBC Lecture Series

Soldiers in Petticoats: The Struggle of the Suffragettes is the topic of discussion at the next Community Lecture Series, which starts at 7 p.m. in the Hawk Union Building at Columbia Basin College in Pasco.

The event is sponsored by the Franklin County Historical Museum and the Soroptomist International Club of Pasco/Kennewick. Admission is free.

Tames Alan, decked out in vintage clothing of the 1800s, will tell the story of women who struggled for equality and the passage of the 14th amendment.

The audience will learn how American women adopted the militant tactics of their English sister suffragettes and earned the right to vote, gaining a freedom of citizenship they never had before. But winning the right to vote wasn't the only thing the suffragettes fought for. The lecture also will provide insight to how these women influenced child labor laws among other victories.
