Why Not New York? The Road to the Vote Exhibit

Join us for an exhibit debut: Why Not New York: The Road to the Vote on June 14 from 6 PM to 7 PM.

Why Not New York? The Road to the Vote exhibit will address the struggle for equal rights in the 19th and 20th century, and the significant role that Chautauqua County citizens played in the movement for women’s suffrage.

November 2017 will mark the Centennial of New York State granting women the right to vote. New Yorkers played a pivotal role in the struggle for women’s suffrage and equal rights beginning in 1848 in Seneca Falls through the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920.

This event is free and open to the public. Donations are not required but will be graciously accepted.
