Today the League joined Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul, the Legislative Women's Caucus, and the Suffrage Celebration Commission to kick off Women's History Month! Our President, Dare Thompson, is a member of the New York Suffrage Commission and we are so excited to be a part of the state's celebration.
Tomorrow we will be joining our Albany County League at Huxley Theater in Albany to watch "Petticoats of Steel", a Capital Rep production and recreation of the events surrounding women winning the right to vote.
The Lieutenant Governor's office will be launching a website ny.gov/suffrage to collect information on women's suffrage celebrations in New York State. The League has already created a calendar of events put on by our local Leagues all over New York State which can be accessed here. Be sure to check back on the calendar as we are updating it almost daily!
We are so excited to move forward with the Commission and can't wait to see what new events will be on the horizon!
