OHIO WOMEN THEN AND NOW

OHIO WOMEN THEN AND NOW was our Women's History celebration of remarkable women.

Eden Valley teamed up with Cleveland's premier women's networking group, Women Making Moves, to present these four special events which included a new presentation each week at a different location around the Cleveland/Lorain area.


The series opened on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at Lorain County Community College with MEET MARGARET BOURKE-WHITE. Alisa Riccardi portrayed this Cleveland photographer who made a name for herself working for Life magazine during W.W.I.I. Margaret waas the first accredited female war correspondent.

On Thursday, March 13, 2014 was MEET ELEANOR ROOSEVELT with Kathie Dice at the Eastern Campus of Cuyahoga Community College. First Lady Eleanor was an active public figure who gave press conferences and spoke out for human rights, children's causes and women's issues - among other things!


MEET VICTORIA WOODHULL premiered on Thursday, March 20, 2014 with Anne McEvoy at the Parma campus of Cuyahoga Community College. Ohioan Victoria Woodhull was a persistent presidential candidate during a time when she couldn't even vote for HERSELF!

The series closed on Thursday, March 27, 2014 with MEET SIX WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE at the Westshore Campus of Cuyahoga Community College where Betty Zak introduced the audience to such historic heroines as Ohio Sharp-shooter Annie Oakley and Maya Lin - Ohio Designer of the Vietnam Memorial.

All proceeds benefited the activities of Women Making Moves and Eden Valley Enterprises' project to create a PBS Documentary about Ohioan Emma Gatewood - who, at the age of 67, became the first woman to solo thru-hike the Appalachian Trail!

We are grateful to all of our audience members who participated in this month's activities.

Our next fundraiser will be on June 14 at the Baseball Heritage Museum in Cleveland where Anne McEvoy will portray Dr. Alta Weiss in YOU CAN'T PLAY BALL IN A SKIRT. Details are still being worked out, so be sure to check our calendar page for information as it becomes available.
