[ARCHIVED] Irvington Historical Society - Myths and Realities: The Long Road to Women’s Suffrage

A Zoom Presentation by Carol Berkin at The Irvington Historical Society’s Annual Meeting

Professor Berkin’s talk will examine some of the myths that have arisen about the origins of the movement for women’s rights and for suffrage in particular.  It broadens the picture to include 18th- and early 19th-century proponents of equality, and suggests why and how the fabled 1848 Women's Rights Convention at Seneca Falls, N.Y, came to overshadow this earlier history of women’s activism --  which 100 years ago culminated in the 19th Amendment.

Friday, November 13, 2020, at 7 p.m.
