On September 2nd, Shake Library is collaborated with Knox County Public Library, the Fortnightly Women's Club, Knox County League of Women Voters, and Frances Vigo Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, to celebrate the Indiana Women's Suffrage Centennial. Marsha Miller delivered the talk From Amanda to Zerelda; Hoosier suffragists Who Raised a Ruckus.

The chronological history of women’s suffrage in Indiana was explored through historical costume and a suffragist song, or two! Marsha Miller introduced Hoosier women who helped shape the movement, including Amanda Way, Grace Julian Clarke, Mary Garrett Hay, Helen Cougar, Zerelda Wallace and May Wright Sewall with a special focus on Ida Husted Harper and Eugene and Kate Debs. Her talk also explored coverage of the little known 1917 Maston-McKinley Partial Suffrage Act, the Legislative Council of Women, and the words of Governor Goodrich upon signing ratification.

This program is presented in partnership of the Indiana Women’s Suffrage Centennial with the support from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. and Hillenbrand Industries.
