Suffrage in the Hudson Valley

Saturday, March 13, 2021 02:00 PM

The fight for women's rights in New York State had important implications at the national level, and many suffrage leaders from New York were important at the Federal level. This program will give an overview of the fight for women's rights that resulted in the passage of women's suffrage in 1917 in New York State, and nationally in 1920 with passage of the 19th Amendment. It will focus especially on artifacts and stories connected to the Hudson Valley. This presentation will be given by Ashley Hopkins Benton, Senior Historian and Curator of Social History at the New York State Museum. This program will be a free Facebook Live lecture.
