Voting Rights for Women-Rockland Voices
August 1 @ 8:00 am - November 5 @ 5:00 pm| Free
From Seneca Falls to New York City’s Lower East Side, from Buffalo to Brooklyn, people in New York State led the women’s suffrage movement from 1848 until suffrage was legalized in New York State in 1917. In that time, the struggle enlisted thousands of women (and men) over several generations, including Rockland County’s own Caroline Lexow Babcock, Mrs. Robert E. Leber, Mrs. Willam A. Serven, Ethel Mann and Fannie Hard. Learn about these important suffragists and more through objects, photographs, and letters in this mini-exhibit mounted as part of the statewide Centennial commemoration of the women’s vote in New York.
Rockland Voices has been made possible by a grant from the Sterling Bank Charitable Foundation. Our thanks also to Katherine Fulmor, granddaughter of Caroline Lexow Babcock, for objects on loan to the mini-exhibition on women’s suffrage
Open Wednesdays-Fridays & Sundays, 12-4 pm
