Votes for Women, an exhibition catalog (available from Amazon and other retailers), celebrates the pivotal role New York State played in the struggle for equal rights in the nineteenth century, the campaign for New York State suffrage, and the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment. The exhibition of the same name, on display at the New York State Museum starting November 4, 2017 through May of 2018, features artifacts from the New York State Museum, Library, and Archives, as well as historical institutions and private collections across the state.
The authors include Jennifer A. Lemak, Chief Curator of History at the New York State Museum. She is the author of Southern Life, Northern City: The History of Albany’s Rapp Road Community and (with Robert Weible and Aaron Noble) An Irrepressible Conflict: The Empire State in the Civil War, both also published by SUNY Press. Ashley Hopkins-Benton is a senior historian and curator at the New York State Museum and the author of Breathing Life Into Stone: The Sculpture of Henry DiSpirito.
