BTE delivers a lesson in voting history

TOP: Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble (BTE) actor Grace Szczepkowski interacts with Lourdes Regional elementary students before performing Friday. BTE’s show, “Finding Our Voices,” outlines the lives and friendship of U.S. women’s rights activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, whose work was pivotal in passing the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote. LEFT: Szczepkowski prompts the audience to gasp during Friday’s performance. Playing Stanton, Szczepkowski told audience members of a marriage proposal, “He must ask me to be his equal, not his wife.” //JULIE HAGENBUCH/STAFF PHOTOS
