Votes for Women! A Reading & Discussion Series

Tuesday, February 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

2017 marks the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in New York State, and in 2020 the nation will celebrate 100 years of the 19th Amendment. The history of the women’s suffrage movement in our state and nation spanned seventy years, from the 1848 meeting convened by Elizabeth Cady Stanton in Seneca Falls to the tactics wielded by Alice Paul, and includes overlooked stories and actors such as the African-American suffragists. Our book selections — which include history, biography, and fiction — provide a window into this chapter of American social progress and a springboard into ongoing discussions of women’s — and by extension, our society’s — past, present, and future. The first program in this series is on February 21st at 6:30 PM, and advance registration is required at http://bit.ly/vote0221.

Contact Kelsy Hibbard-Baker at khibbardbaker@pls-net.org or 315-789-5303 ext. 102 for more information or to register.
