Do Everything Day Virtual Tour 2023
Frances Willard House
1730 Chicago Ave, Evanston, IL 60201
Each September, the Frances Willard House Museum marks Frances Willard’s birthday (September 28) with special programs and tours that examine her model of leadership. In honor of the 150th anniversary of Willard’s inaugural term as the first Dean of Women at Northwestern University in 1873, Do Everything 2023 will explore her contributions to and struggles in the field of women’s higher education. On Sunday, September 24 at 4pm CT, join us for a virtual account of Willard’s first term as Northwestern’s Dean of Women. Willard broke new ground as a woman professor teaching women and men students in the same classrooms. But while Northwestern students championed her tenure as “a most substantial triumph in favor of the woman movement,” Willard faced unprecedented challenges to her leadership from within and without. RSVP for this free online program here. A Zoom link will be sent shortly before the event to everyone who registers.
