Women's History Month
Monday, March 5, 2018
We are excited to partner with LinkNYC and the New York City Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications (DoITT) to honor influential women in New York City politics for Women’s History Month. Throughout March, LinkNYC kiosks across the five boroughs will display images of notable women from the Museum’s exhibition Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics.
The exhibition tells the story of women’s political activism through rare artifacts, documents, garments, and photographs—from suffragist campaign items to a pantsuit worn by Hillary Clinton.
Look out for us on kiosks around the city to get to know some of the extraordinary women that changed New York City and the world, including:
Sarah J.S. Tompkins Garnet
Mary Garrett Hay
Verina Morton Jones
Narcissa Cox Vanderlip
Explore the rich history of feminist activism in New York City with Teen Vogue’s new executive editor, Samhita Mukhopadhyay, and leading scholars on March 25 at A City Made by Women: A Symposium.
