Women's Suffrage

Celebrating the Centennial of Women's Suffrage in New York State.... More


New York State had a leading role in the national Women's Suffrage Movement. The movement began in 1848, with the Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls. It was there that Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote "The Declaration of Sentiments." In 1853, female delegates were not allowed to speak at the World's Temperance Convention leading Stanton and Susan B. Anthony to form the American Equal Rights Association. After years of struggle, New York State women achieved the right to vote in 1917, paving the way for the eventual ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920.
To celebrate the centennial of that landmark New York legislation, Albany will host a number of special exhibits, performances, and talks devoted to this important movement in American history.
