As we consider the possibility of a female president, the fascinating but little known story of Belva Lockwood, the first woman to carry on a presidential campaign in the United States (in 1884 and 1888), comes alive from the lecture platform at the Friends Luncheon for the Women’s Studies Program at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Sally Roesch Wagner, executive director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation and a nationally known lecturer and author on the history of women’s rights, will speak at the luncheon from noon until 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, in the Carlisle Suite at the E. H. Hereford University Center, 300 W. First St. There is limited parking available near the University Bookstore at the corner of Pecan Street and UTA Blvd. Parking is also available in the Maverick Parking Garage at the corner of S. West and Fourth streets.

Tickets for the luncheon and lecture are $20. Sponsored tables are available for $200 and $400. For more information call Women’s Studies at (817) 272-3131 or visit
