Timeline of Central New York State Women's Suffrage

The History Center's staff engaged multiple resources to identify the role of Central and Upstate New York in promoting Women's Suffrage between the 1840s and 1920s. The aim of the resource is to highlight local and regional initiatives related to the arc of working toward women's suffrage. The timeline is a part of the digital educational materials developed for the Women's Suffrage Centennial. View the Timeline of Central New York State Women's Suffrage.

 

New Book on Role of Men in Suffrage Movement

Brooke Kroeger’s book, The Suffragents (SUNY Press, 2017) tells the story of how some of New York’s most powerful men formed the Men’s League for Woman Suffrage, which grew between 1909 and 1917 from 150 founding members into a force of thousands across thirty-five states.

Kroeger details the National American Woman Suffrage Association’s strategic decision to accept their organized help and then to deploy these influential new allies as suffrage foot soldiers, a role they accepted.

 

Rural Voices on the Path to Women’s Rights Exhibit is celebrating Tompkins county's Rural Women and their influence on their communities and the 1917 Suffrage victory.  

It is a collection of some of the history of suffrage and notable women in the rural communities in parts of Tompkins County taken from the time of the landmark vote.  The exhibit, which will travel to each of the rural libraries in Tompkins County, consists of 9 panels that explore daily life for women in rural areas, the pro and anti-suffrage sentiment and notable stories of women in each area.
