1915 Suffrage Parade in New York

This installation featuring artifacts and images from the Women's Suffrage movement of the early 20th century, opens in time for Women's History Month. The exhibit features two large artifacts from the Museum's extensive History collections. One, a wagon, served as both a prop and a speaker’s platform for suffragettes working to get the word out and garner support. The other, a parade banner, was carried in a massive suffrage parade held in 1917 in New York City. It was in that year that women gained the right to vote in New York State.
