The New York State Archives Partnership Trust has invited the public to attend a free talk, “A Sustainable Word of Equality and Peace: The Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Influence on the Women’s Suffrage Movement”, on Friday, May 19 at 4 pm at the Roberson Museum and Science Center at 30 Front Street, Binghamton.
Commemorating the 2017 centennial anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York State, Humanities New York Public Scholars Sally Roesch Wagner and Freida Jacques will discuss the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) influence on the women’s suffrage movement in New York and its legacy. Roesch Wagner and Jacques explore the impact that Haudenosaunee women, living in absolute equality, had on Euro-American women, who lost all their rights when they married.
This event is made possible through the Public Scholars program at Humanities New York with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Registration is encouraged, but not required. Register by calling (518) 474-1303 or click here.
