Lea Craigie-Marshall's panel entitled "Brilliant Suffragette" represents her Scottish relative Mary E. Craigie. Mary, who worked tirelessly on the National American Woman Suffrage Association's Special Committee on Church Work, was charged with earning the votes of clergymen around the country. She worked directly with Women's Suffrage leaders and helped secure the women's rights to vote. Especially in today's abysmal political and social environment, Lea was thrilled to discover such a strong, inspiring woman to have as the subject of her panel.
