Benjamin Center to cohost women’s suffrage centennial ...

Two weeks from today (April 21-22), SUNY New Paltz is presenting WOMEN IN POLITICS: Past, Present, and Future, A Conference Commemorating the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in New York State.  The Benjamin Center, in collaboration with Women’s Gender, and Sexuality Studies, History, and Political Science, and partnering with the FDR Library and the League of Women Voters, has organized a program that highlights the connections between New York women’s struggle for the vote, their political activism up to the present, and the unfinished agenda of women’s rights today.

This conference will be a unique opportunity to foster discussion about a wide range of women’s movements between faculty, students, scholars, activists, politicians, and the public.  Our hope is to open an intergenerational dialogue about women’s political activism and the current state of the movement to advance women’s human and civil rights.

Today I am writing to promote the second day of the program, which will take place on the SUNY New Paltz campus. This chrage for this program is $35, including a continental breakfast, panels by prominent scholars, activists, and politicians, a box lunch, a keynote address by Black Feminist author and activist Barbara Smith, and a workshop for K-12 teachers.

The patch program is a partnership between Girl Scouts councils and the New York State Women's Suffrage Commission, chaired by Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. All seven Girl Scouts councils in New York will participate in the patch program, giving girls across the state an engaging way to learn about the history of the women’s movement in New York and envision how they can lead for justice.
