Women's History Month Celebration with Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo

-A A +A

What do you know about the struggle of women to earn the right to vote?  Many of us have heard of Susan B. Anthony, but have you heard of the “Ladies of Lisle” and their contribution to the women’s suffrage movement?

March is Women’s History Month, and in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in New York State, Broome County Office for Aging and SUNY Broome Women’s Institute are co-sponsoring a special presentation on Thursday, March 9 at 11:00 am at the Broome West Senior Center.  Guest speakers, including NYS Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, will share some thoughts on the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in New York State.  Tioga County Historian Emma Sedore will provide a fascinating look at the lives of several local women, such as Esther Morris, who championed women’s suffrage in Broome and Tioga counties.

If you would like to stay for lunch after the program, please call the center to make your reservation no later than noon on March 8: (607)785-1777.
