Women’s History Month in New York State

The New York State Library celebrates Women’s History Month and the centennial of full suffrage for women in the State of New York.  Check out this exhibit examining how journals’ coverage of the suffrage movement changed in relation to major events such as World War I, the push for a woman suffrage amendment to the US Constitution, and the passage of the 19th Amendment, as well as the fight for woman suffrage in New York State. The exhibit also looks at the anti-suffrage movement and how suffrage journals reacted to that group.
