The Hags Celebrate Labor Day

Lin Pollard suggested the Hags do a Labor Day concert, celebrating the music and history of the labor movement. We thought it was a great idea, and so did the Cass District Library. We’re looking forward to performing on Sept. 3rd at 6:30. In the meantime, we are discovering amazing songs and histories. As you may know, the Women’s Suffrage movement was linked to the labor movement — women wanted equal rights! Still do!!! The song Bread and Roses is a marching song for the suffragettes. The photo is of Emmeline Pankhurst being arrested in 1914. pankhurst
