Living History Days at N-YHS
Living History: Votes for Women!
Saturday, April 27, and Sunday, April 28, 12 – 4 pm


Free with Museum Admission
All ages

As part of School Vacation Week, spend the weekend immersed in the activist causes of woman suffragists! Passed by Congress 100 years ago this year, join us in celebrating the 19th amendment with Living Historians portraying suffragists from the early 20th century who helped win the right to vote for women across the nation.

Listen to stories about their contributions to the battle for the ballot, take a close look at their 1900s wardrobe and special parade accessories, and discover what it was like to canvass the city for voters. You can even make a pin-on suffrage cockade to show and wear your support!

Please contact familyprograms@nyhistory.org for more information and pricing.
