Clerestory presents SUFFRAGIST (San Francisco)

Sun 2 February 2020
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

We begin 2020 by celebrating the centennial year of the 19th Amendment. Our concert _SUFFRAGIST _is all about trailblazing women, from innovative female perspectives in modern composition, to suffrage songs that women sang beginning in the late 1800s as they fought for the right to vote. Learn more at []. The British press coined the term _suffragette_ to mock the movement for women's rights, intending the suffix _-ette_ as a diminutive. But some activists embraced it. The Women's Social and Political Union named their newsletter _Suffragette_, saying that "the Suffragist just wants the vote, while the Suffragette means to _GET_ it.” However, in America, is was most commonly used to condescend.  In the spirit of celebrating of these activists - and all women trailblazers, Clerestory is naming our concert SUFFRAGIST. Hear the voices of these women through the suffrage songs they sang, and through the music of generations they continue to inspire.
