May’s Vote for Women’s History Month

(Airdate: March 22, 2021) This week on Attention Please! we speak with Key City Public Theater Artistic Director Denise Winter and Seattle-based actor Barbara Callander about a play called May’s Vote, based on the real-life figures of two suffragettes, May Arkinwright Hutton and Emma Smith Devoe, who led the fight for women’s right to vote in Washington state in the early 20th century. The play, written by Toni Douglass for the 1989 Washington State Centennial, is being presented in a series of free online performances in honor of Women’s History Month by the Jefferson County Historical Society and a number of other sponsors.
