Suffrage centennials only come around once every 100 years. So you have to take advantage of a suffrage centennial when it's here. The suffrage movement also called itself Votes for Women.
The US suffrage movement took 72 years relied on grassroots organizing to reach its goals. July 1, 1913 was when the "Spirit of 1776" horse-drawn wagon left the headquarters of the New York State Woman Suffrage Association in Manhattan and headed to Long Island for a month of grassroots campaigning. On June 18, 2013 both houses of the New York State Legislature passed resolutions designating July 1, 2013 the "Spirit of 1776" Wagon Day in New York. This video combines four shorts and puts them all together. New York State is the cradle of the women's rights movement in the United States. Let's rock the cradle! Celebrate women's freedom to vote.
