Women Voted Here-Before Columbus Sally Roesch Wagner
Sunday, May 3, 2020 02:00 PM
Clermont State Historic Site

Imagine that women have the right to choose all political representatives, removing from office anyone who doesn't make wise decisions for the future. When women in New York State began to organize for their rights in 1848, they took their cue from the nearby Haudenosaunee communities, where women lived in the world that non-native women dreamed. In celebration of the 100 anniversary of the women's suffrage movement we are excited to welcome Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner to Clermont! Feminist pioneer Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner is a nationally recognized lecturer, author and story-teller of women's rights history. ($10 per person registration is required)
