Waukegan Area Branch members
portray some of the suffragettes who spoke at the first Women's Rights Convention, held in 1850, Brinley Hall, Worchester, Massachusetts.

Today's tea was the Lake County Women's Coaltion's fifteenth and last such affair. It was attended by 120 women who belong to a dozen women's organizations in Lake County, Illinois. Proceeds from raffles will fund a scholarship for a returning woman student at the College of Lake County.

The Coalition will continue to honor women at its annual March--Women's History Month--event.
