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. November 2017 marks the Centennial of New York State granting women the right to vote. Celebrate New York State’s triumph.
Why Not New York? The Road to the Vote 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.
