Dr. Susan Goodier and Dr. Karen Pastorello will discuss the story of the New York State women’s suffrage movement that culminated in women gaining the right to vote in 1917, three years before the national amendment was passed. They will detail how New York suffragists were the vanguard for the movement, and their success provided the momentum for the national amendment.
