The Wilmette Historical Museum kicks off Women’s History Month with an exhibit opening and lecture.  Stop by from 1–2 p.m. for a free reception and to explore the new exhibit “Wilmette Women Breaking the Glass Ceiling” which highlights some of Wilmette’s most accomplished residents, women who rose to prominence in their chosen fields in the last several decades.  The exhibit opening will be followed at 2 p.m. by a conversation with Lori Osborne, director of the Evanston Women’s History Project and the Frances Willard House Museum, on “Illinois Women and the Fight for the Vote.” Her talk marks 100 years since the 1920 ratification of the 19th Amendment. The lecture is free for Museum members and $5 for non-members.
