Suffrage and Citizenship in the 21st Century

Pay tribute to fearless women past and present at this summer celebration of suffrage and citizenship. Little revolutionaries will have the chance to make their own “radical cross stitch” crafts, learn suffrage ballads, and share poems about social justice during a visit from Susan Hood, award-winning author of Shaking Things Up: Fourteen Young Women Who Changed the World. Hear them roar!

Vote Like a Girl is a Women’s History Institute event. The Women’s History Institute is a new Historic Hudson Valley initiative designed to illuminate the significant contributions made by women in our region.

The Institute will foster a deeper understanding of the women who shaped the culture and chronicle of the area, including the diverse women who lived and worked on our sites, and offer a contemporary audience the resources necessary to take inspiration from their history.
