We’ve been following little Serena Kearns and the role she played in the suffrage movement. Other children participated in the movement, including a few who actually hit the lecture circuit. Serena marched in suffrage parades in Washington, DC and New York City. She also participated in pageants, including a 1913 suffrage fundraiser at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. The suffrage movement for the Kearns family involved everyone. Find out about Serena’s parents, Edna and Wilmer.
A reference to Serena at a NYC rally where she represents other children.
