The Historical Society of Woodstock will host “Standing on Their Shoulders: 101 Years of Voting and Still Marching for Women’s Rights,” a new exhibit set to run from September 18th through October 24th, at the Eames House Museum in Woodstock, NY.
“Standing on Their Shoulders: 101 Years of Voting and Still Marching for Women’s Rights” is based on the social justice work of Elisabeth Freeman (1876-1942) and Edna Kearns (1882-1934) as documented by their Woodstock-related descendants, featuring early 20th century photographs and artifacts with interactive videos and music. The exhibit can be viewed on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 pm. Admission is free.
The exhibit marks the finale of the Historical Society’s yearlong women’s rights centennial celebration funded by Humanities New York with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
An opening reception is set for Sunday, September 19th from 2 to 5 pm featuring live music by award-winning singer/songwriter Pat Lamanna.
The Eames House Museum is located at 20 Comeau Drive in Woodstock. For more information visit the Historical Society of Woodstock website.
