Votes for Women, an exhibition catalog for the November 2017 exhibit at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY is available for advance ordering on Amazon. The exhibition paperback celebrates the pivotal role the state played in the struggle for equal rights in the nineteenth century, the state campaign for suffrage, and the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. It highlights the nationally significant role of state leaders relative to women’s rights and the feminist movement through the early twenty-first century and includes focused essays from historians on the various aspects of the suffrage and equal rights movements around New York, providing greater detail about local stories with statewide significance.
The exhibition of the same name, on display at the New York State Museum opening November 4 2017, features artifacts from the New York State Museum, Library, and Archives, as well as historical institutions and private collections across the state.
The “Spirit of 1776” suffrage campaign wagon used by Long Island and NYC suffrage activist Edna Kearns will be part of the November exhibit that runs through May 2018.
