Rochester Suffrage Traveling Exhibit

Suffrage Traveling Exhibit Now at Penfield Public Library

Now extended through to the end of October by popular demand!

“Once home to Susan B. Anthony and headquarters of the country’s leading woman suffrage organization, Rochester played a key role in New York’s suffrage movement. Failure, Anthony claimed, was impossible. But Anthony did not succeed on her own. Who are the lesser-known women and men who stood alongside her and what stories do they have to tell?” – rocsuffrage

You can find out more about these women and men by viewing a special exhibit that will be at Penfield Public Library through the end of October.
