The Suffragist Open House @ Noon
200 North Avenue 66
Los Angeles
http://www.L34group.com

The Women’s Suffrage Movement is celebrated at the open house of the home once owned by prominent advocates Anna Howard Shaw and Cora Scott Pond Pope, who became leaders of the National Suffragist Movement, fighting for women’s rights including the right to vote.

The open house begins at Noon at 200 North Ave 66 in Los Angeles.

Early women’s rights activists Anna Howard Shaw (1847-1919) and Cora Scott Pond Pope (1856-1932) bought the land for the Garvanza home in 1886; at the time of the house construction, the two were living in Boston working with the Women’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) but the following year were encouraged by Susan B. Anthony to become leaders in her organization, the National Women Suffrage Association (NWSA).

A physician and the first ordained female Methodist minister in the United States, Shaw became a close friend of Anthony and became her personal physician; she tended to Anthony as her health deteriorated prior to her death in 1906. By 1908, Shaw served in a leadership of the NWSA until 1915. Pope created and toured the country with a patriotic tableaux series “American Pageant” which depicted the active roles women played in the important moments in U.S. history.

In addition to being a house with historic owners, the building is an example of American Colonial Revival architecture. It sits upon a hill overlooking the Arroyo Seco and many of the original décor and fixtures. The house has a storied history -- used initially by the WCTU as a woman's home but, according to cryptic articles published in 1889, may have been the scene of a "secret society" of young women. Shaw and Pope were forced to sell the house in 1897, after the costly failure of an 1896 ballot initiative to allow women to vote in California.
