CANCELED - The Unfinished Work of the Women's Suffrage Movement

  • Saratoga Springs Public Library 49 Henry Street Saratoga Springs, NY, 12866 United States (map)

We apologize for any inconvenience, but this evening's program is CANCELED, and will be rescheduled for a later date. Thank you.

Please join Sally Roesch Wagner, a nationally recognized lecturer and author of The Women's Suffrage Movement, for a program that gives voice to the unsung women who helped shape the suffrage movement, including African American suffragists who faced racism within the movement, and Iroquois women whose society influenced suffragists.

Sally Roesch Wagner is the Executive Director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Center for Social Justice Dialogue. She contributed to and is featured in Ken Burns’ documentary "Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony." In advance of the 2020 centennial of the 19th amendment, the suffragists' concerns for equality, social justice and voting rights remain as pertinent today as ever.

There will be a book signing at the program’s conclusion. Co-sponsored by the Saratoga Springs Public Library. Free and open to the public. No registration required.
