Votes For Women:
100th Anniversary of Suffrage in New York

New York State was key to the women's suffrage movement. Women gained the vote here 100 years ago, three years before the passage of the 19th Amendment.

Join us for a talk by Natalie Taylor, Political Science professor at Skidmore College, about the key players and changing political strategies that led to success in New York State and eventually nationally. Taylor will talk about the moral arguments advanced by Susan B. Anthony and early suffragists, and the evolution of political strategies over time, including Carrie Chapman Catt's "Winning Plan" that focused on winning the vote state-by-state, and Alice Paul's more militant tactics at the federal level.

Co-sponsored by the Saratoga Springs Public Library and the League of Women Voters of Saratoga County.
