Woman’s Protest: Two Sides of the Fight for Suffrage in New York
October 13 – December 30, 2017
Woman’s Protest: Two Sides of the Fight for Suffrage In New York examines the long, complex and ongoing battle for equal rights for women. Named after an anti-suffrage magazine, the Woman’s Protest exhibit examines why it took 72 years from the first women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls in 1848 until New York finally granted women the right to vote in 1917 – three years before the 19th Amendment made women’s suffrage the law of the land nationwide.
Woman’s Protest is sponsored by the Cayuga Community Fund.
