We've also set our sights on the 2020 suffrage centennial celebration in the nation and 2017's suffrage centennial in New York State. Women's suffrage was hot during 2016 and we're witnessing the linking of the past, present and future. Follow the suffrage wagon, the "Spirit of 1776" used by Edna Kearns and other suffrage movement organizers in New York City and Long Island. Women voters: Do you know how your rights were won? It took 72 years from 1848 to 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Teachers, policy makers, students, people of all ages are following the Suffrage Wagon as a source for storytelling, news and views of the suffrage movement. Whether you call these activists suffragists or suffragettes, we're all about the same movement.
The "Spirit of 1776" suffrage campaign wagon will be on exhibit in 2017 at the New York State Museum. Put a visit to Albany, NY on your bucket list!
