Well, obviously, it’s a Stanton impersonator, since the suffragist and social activist died in 1902.

The event is Sunday, July 3 at the Freeman Store and Museum, 131 Church St. NE, Vienna, at 3 p.m. Enjoy an afternoon tea of finger sandwiches & desserts with Ms. Stanton, portrayed by Leigh Kitcher. $20 per person,
advance reservations required.

The tea is being offered in conjunction with the small exhibit: The Road to
Women’s Rights: The Origins of the Women’s Rights Movement. Learn
interesting facts about women’s right to vote at the exhibit.

The museum will offer a series of small exhibits that explore the women’s rights movement over the next four years. The exhibit series honors the 100th anniversary of establishment of the National Women’s Party in 1916 and
the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote in 1920.

Call (703) 938-5187 for reservations.
