Suffrage centennial events in Albany and New York City—celebration continues!

New York State Museum will exhibit “Spirit of 1776” suffrage wagon in 2017! on Vimeo.

The suffrage wagon used by Edna Kearns on Long Island and in New York City will be part of a large Votes for Women exhibition at the NYS Museum in Albany, NY. The show, “VOTES FOR WOMEN: Celebrating New York’s Suffrage Centennial” opens on November 4, 2017 and runs through May 13, 2018. The exhibition is being organized by the New York State Museum, New York State Library, and New York State Archives.

If you’re planning a trip to the “cradle” of the women’s rights movement in NYS during 2017, watch for upcoming news about special events, celebrations, conferences, and much more. New York State has a funded state suffrage commission that met during 2016 and 2017 and will continue meeting through 2020, the 100-year observance that American women have been preparing for. This means local, regional, state, and national events and celebrations. The Votes for Women exhibit will feature collections from the New York State Museum, New York State Library, and the New York State Archives, as well as artifacts from historical institutions and private collections.
