The kick-off for New York State Women’s Suffrage 100th Anniversary Commemoration Commission was held in Seneca Fall, NY in August 2016. The commission is responsible for a series of statewide programs celebrating the suffrage victory in New York State in 1917. New York women won the right to vote in November of 1917.

“We will be taking the message of women’s equality all across the State over the next three years and celebrating the accomplishments of women and their contributions history,” said Commission Chair Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. “At the same time, as the state’s highest-ranking elected woman, I hope we can inspire the next generation of young women who want to rise up and achieve great things themselves.”

The New York State Women’s Suffrage 100th Anniversary Commemoration Commission was sponsored by Sen. Betty Little and Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther and signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo. During its inaugural meeting in 2016, members of the Commission outlined plans for events to take place over the next three years highlighting historic achievements for women that include voting rights.
