Votes for NY Women: A Centennial Exhibit
July 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am - December 31, 2017 @ 4:30 pm| $5
Votes for New York Women (1917-2017), a Centennial Exhibit, in our History in the Hall Gallery. When women in New York State won the right to vote one hundred years ago—making 2017 the centennial of that historic civil rights victory—their success changed the national political landscape and was a critical tipping point on the road to a constitutional amendment three years later. This exhibit celebrates the centennial by narrating the stories of Long Island women activists who dedicated themselves to the powerful grassroots movement. Curated by our head librarian, Wendy Polhemus-Annibell the exhibit is on display now thru the end of December 2017. Gallery Hours: Weds. – Sat., 10:00 am – 4:30 pm.
