Winning the Vote: Greece Women in the Suffrage Movement


Our newest exhibit marks the 100th anniversary of women winning the vote in New York.

The exhibit focuses on Greece women who supported the campaign to win women the right to vote in New York State, particularly Jean Brooks Greenleaf, Georgia Bonesteel Raynsford, and the Charlotte Political Equality Club. It details the three county conventions held in Greece and the famous suffragists who frequently visited, including Susan B. Anthony, Mary Anthony, Anna Howard Shaw, and Harriet May Mills.

The exhibit was curated by Maureen Whalen with the help of Marie Poinan, Joe Vitello, Wendy Peeck, Bill Sauers, Alan Mueller, Lee Strauss, and Jack Kemp.
