Votes for Women Exhibit
The LWV of NYS Education Foundation &

invite you to a special evening reception celebrating the 
100th anniversary of women's right to vote in New York State and the opening of the State Museum's Votes for Women Exhibit
Nov. 4, 5:00 - 8:00 pm
NYS Museum, Albany

Join us for a reception celebrating the opening of this exhibit. Coline Jenkins,  great, great granddaughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, will speak about growing up in a family of women activist. In addition to Stanton,  her great grandmother Harriot Stanton Blatch, worked as a major organizer of New York State woman suffrage during the Militant Period of 1913-1915.  Her grandmother, Nora Stanton Blatch DeForest Barney, was the first female civil engineer to graduate (1905) from Cornell.  Jenkins' mother was born one month prior to the passage of the 19th Amendment of the  US Constitution in 1920.  Jenkins grew up in an atmosphere of suffrage and women's right campaigning.

Museum staff will also serve as guides as we have private access to this new exhibit on women's suffrage history.
