IMPORTANT UPDATE! The Staten Island Museum’s 73rd Annual Fence Show is now on SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2023!
Due to inclement weather, the Fence Show and Biergarten have been moved.
Women of the Nation Arise! brought together a panel of scholars and experts to advise the development of the exhibition and examine the contributions of Staten Island’s suffragists, present-day issues of political equality, and voter participation. Join us with Zoom to hear firsthand the conclusions reached by the panel about Staten Island’s role in expanding voting rights – a core principle of American government.
This program is made possible by a planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
