The suffragists’ story has not been thoroughly told.
Suffragists were brave women who defied their families, society and the law. Their stories are filled with drama, intrigue, bravery, and personal sacrifice.
The suffragists who won the right to vote in 1920 understood that their work would never be completed in their lifetimes.
Votes For Women 2020 picks up where these brave women left off and today we continue to move their dreams forward through celebrating the suffrage centennial in 2020.
Read about the buzz associated with the “Brimstone, Booze, and the Ballot” program sponsored by Votes for Women 2020, the Susan B. Anthony House, and the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation. Preview of the program. New York History overview. New Paltz blog highlights.
