Youngest Parader in NYC Suffragist Parade. Library of Congress: Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, DC.

Our library’s History Room, as part of its Local History Speaker Series, is pleased to present “Suffragettes: 100 Years, 10 Stories, from Hudson; We’re Counting” by Nicole Childrose on Thursday, March 23 at 6:00 pm.

This event will be an interactive lecture and discussion celebrating northeastern women and their contributions throughout history. An exploration of 10 case studies of local women with ties to Hudson and the greater Hudson Valley region will allow audience members to have a greater understanding of local women who have made political, economic and social contributions.

Emphasis will be placed on historiography, social and cultural history and innovative approaches to understanding our community roots. Strategies will also be shared to empower audience members to understand and appreciate history through diverse and unique lenses. There will be refreshments and a question and answer session will follow.
