Come and hear the story of the fight for women to get the vote in New York State, only two years before the Nineteenth Amendment gave all American women the right to vote. New York women were the first to demand the vote, but struggled for seventy years to achieve it. Learn about the women who fought but failed, and the women who finally won.

This is a two-part class (2/7 and 2/14) taught at Rochester Oasis, an organization for people over the age of 50. The class will have two sections – 1-2pm and 2:15-3:15pm
