"In 2017 it will be 100 years since New York State signed woman's suffrage into law, three years before the US passed the 19th Amendment. This was a milestone for the state and a transformative moment in American democracy. Equal opportunity is as important a topic today as it was when Susan B. Anthony was arrested in Rochester for attempting to vote.
This historical moment is the perfect time to frame a statewide discussion about the social, professional and political equality of women—and by extension, all citizens—in New York State.” – from New York Council for the Humanities’ web page
