The Pomeroy Foundation has been funding suffrage-related road markers through New York State. These markers are attractive and add value to a community’s awareness of its history.

Volunteers have been doing a fabulous job tracking new books and a straight forward way of presenting the suffrage movement in its larger context, especially race issues, so the subject matter is accessible to those of us following the long and difficult struggle for women’s rights that continues to this day.
