You are invited to an opening reception for our newest exhibit as we mark the 100th anniversary of women winning the vote in New York. Join us on the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Charlotte Political Equality Club. Light refreshments will be served. The exhibit focuses on some of the Greece women who supported the campaign to win women the 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.
