Celebrating the Centennial of NYS Women’s Right to Vote (1917-2017)

Celebrating the Centennial of NYS Women’s Right to Vote (1917-2017)

This year – 2017 – marks 100 years since New York State signed woman’s suffrage into law, three years before the U.S. passed the 19th Amendment. Equal opportunity for women is as crucial a topic in today’s political climate as it was when Susan B. Anthony was arrested in Rochester for attempting to vote. Join us for a discussion about the social, professional, and political progress of women in New York State. We’ll connect contemporary concerns – civil rights, gender diversity, equality, and civic engagement – to the legacy of women’s suffrage.

Why am I part of BNC...

You may be wondering if NYS Women Inc. is a good use of your valuable time. It is. I've been a member since 1999 and have made great contacts, great friends, learned a lot about a variety of topics and enjoyed wonderful food. What else could be worth only a couple hours of your time per month?
