Votes for New York Women: A Centennial Exhibit
September 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Votes for New York Women: A Centennial Exhibit Celebrating Long Island Women’s Role in New York’s 1917 Suffrage Victory. On display through 2017. Curated by Wendy Polhemus-Annibell. Gallery Hours: Weds. – Sat., 10:00 am – 4:30 pm.
When New York State women won the right to vote one hundred years ago—making 2017 the centennial of that historic civil rights victory—their success changed the national political landscape and was a critical tipping point on the road to a constitutional amendment. Our “History in the Hall” exhibit celebrates the centennial by narrating the stories of Long Island women activists who dedicated themselves to the powerful grassroots movement.
