Dr. Sally Roesch-Wagner, a New York Council for the Humanities Scholar, will talk about the Haudenosaunee women of New York and their equal rights society that influenced the early suffragists. Haudenosaunee women owned the land, the children, and the food and resources. Their husbands took their wives’ family names, and women voted on and removed male political representatives. Haudenosaunee women demonstrated to the suffragists that egalitarian society was possible.
