The 19th- and early 20th-century women's rights movement involved a diverse activist community. Multiracial, multiethnic, and multipolar, women from all walks of life took part in the women's rights movement in the United States. This reading and discussion series will step outside the received history of the women's rights and woman suffrage movement to explore the diversity of people and ideas that animated it. Facilitators will be Dr. Jenny Lloyd and Cheryl Sampson. Presented by the Local History & Genealogy Division with generous support from Humanities New York.
