(Please note: Events at the Lewis Davis Pavilion are cancelled March 11-15.)

On Wednesday, March 11th at 6pm, come to our Lewis Davis Pavilion to delve into history – and how women impacted it.

New-York Historical Society‘s Jeanne Pape will be here to show how, before they could even vote, women across the spectrum of race and class exercised power and brought about change.

Attendees will explore the stories of prominent and little-known women activists of the Early Republic, the abolitionist movement, the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, and the suffrage movement. Attendees will also learn about the NYHS’ Our Center for Women’s History, the first of its kind at a major US museum, where you can explore the lives and legacies of women who have shaped and continue to shape the American experience”.
