100th Anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote in NYS!

November 6th marks the date when NYS voted in 1917 to give the women the franchise.  Humanities New York will celebrate 100 years of women gaining the right to vote in New York State with a social media campaign anyone can participate in! An easy way to join us and our partners across NYS is by sharing photos on social media, using #NY4Suffrage in your posts from now until the end of November. Our top posters will win a book from our “Votes for Women” Reading & Discussion program. To see last month’s top posts, click here. Or, make a statement through crafts! It’s a great way to honor the women who made banners, pins, and sashes 100 years ago to get the vote. Bring people together by leading a craft activity with our how-to guide.
