Opening Reception for Winning the Vote: The Women of Greece Involved in the Suffrage Movement

Friday, September 15 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Greece Museum, 595 Long Pond Road.

The public is invited to an opening reception for Greece Historical Society’s newest exhibit as we mark the 100th anniversary of women winning the vote in New York.

The exhibit focuses on some of the Greece women who supported the campaign to win women the vote in New York State, particularly Jean Brooks Greenleaf, Georgia Bonesteel Raynsford, and the Charlotte Political Equality Club. It details the three county conventions held in Greece and the famous suffragists who frequently visited including Susan B. Anthony, Mary Anthony, Anna Howard Shaw, and Harriet May Mills.

This exhibit will continue to be open to the public, along with their other museum exhibits on Sunday afternoons from 1:30 – 4:00 p.m. The exhibit was curated by Maureen Whalen with the help of Marie Poinan, Joe Vitello, Wendy Peeck, Bill Sauers, Alan Mueller, Lee Strauss, and Jack Kemp.
