Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics


Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics traces women’s political activism in New York City from the struggle to win the vote, through the 20th century, and into our own times. Many of the artifacts, documents, and photographs utilized in the exhibition from the collection are pictured here. They span more than a century, and show how women have been politicized—and in turn changed politics—in New York and beyond.
