Madeline McDowell Breckinridge (portrayed by Kelly Brengelman)
Madeline McDowell Breckinridge — or Madge, as she preferred — was both a state and national leader of the women’s suffrage movement, and was highly instrumental in Kentucky’s ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting American women the right to vote. Kelly Brengelman portrays this historic woman as a Chautauqua speaker program with @Kentucky Humanities on Friday, November 5 at 6:30pm. The Smithsonian Exhibit “Voices and Votes: Democracy in America” will be open 1pm to 6:30 pm with a brief viewing time after the program.
