Read and discuss a variety of books about women’s history and impact during this special book club. This month, the club is reading “The Hello Girls” by Elizabeth Cobbs. This book shares the story of the first official U.S. Army female officers, who worked for the U.S. Army Signal Corps in France during World War I. They joined the army at the same time suffragettes were lobbying for the right to vote. Joan Eardly, education coordinator, leads this discussion. The book club is part of the Hayes Presidential’s “Finding Her Voice” program. This special program runs in conjunction with the centennial of women’s suffrage and includes special exhibits in the museum, the book club and other programs being planned to celebrate and learn about women’s history.“Finding Her Voice” is sponsored by title sponsor the Reed Fund of The Toledo Community Foundation and major sponsors The Randolph J. & Estelle M. Dorn Foundation and ProMedica Memorial Hospital. “Finding Her Voice” is made possible in part by Ohio Humanities, a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
