In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and Election Day, this program explores the women’s suffrage efforts in the Town of Aurora and Village of East Aurora in the decades leading up to November 1917, when women were granted the right to vote in New York State. This presentation will go beyond the important role the Roycroft played in the movement and explore lesser-known local suffrage workers; the challenge to convince East Aurorans – both male and female – that women were qualified to vote; and the local efforts after 1917 to encourage women to cast their ballots and run for office.
