HAGERSTOWN -- Ellouise Schoettler is a storyteller who is part of her own story.
Sunday afternoon, Schoettler spoke to the League of Women Voters of Washington County about "A Journey to the ERA," outlining her efforts and those of millions of other women who for 10 years worked unsuccessfully for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
"It was a coup to get her to Hagerstown," said Fanny Crawford, co-president of the local league along with Barb Rice.
Between 15 and 20 people attended the fundraiser at the Women's Club in Hagerstown. And though attendance was low, Crawford said enthusiasm was high.
