The Time and the Valleys Museum is set to host a virtual program by Sullivan County Historian (and periodic contributor to New York Almanack) John Conway entitled The Suffragists: Fight for the Vote in Sullivan County, on Sunday, August 23rd.
2020 is the 100th Anniversary of women gaining the right two vote in the United States. Women won the right to vote after decades of struggle and against strong opposition from men – and some women – who feared that government would be placed “under petticoat rule.”
Ultimately, it was effective leadership and the development of what became known as “the winning plan” that turned the tide.
This program will begin at 2 pm. To attend, email the Museum at email@example.com.
For more information, call (845) 985-7700, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Museum’s website.
