Join us for the public opening reception of this dynamic new exhibition honoring the centennial of the 19th amendment. Women of the Nation Arise! presents Staten Island’s unique place in the history of the suffrage movement by recounting stories of local suffragists, their contributions to the national effort, and the tactics they employed to win the vote.
Discover how women's right to vote was earned as well as the relevance to present-day considerations of civic engagement and voter participation.
This Exhibition is made possible in part by Con Edison, the New York State Council on the Arts, public funds provided through the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, and by a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
