Program Alert: A Woman Presidential Candidate… In 1884 (12/6/17)

December 4th, 2017 by Amy - Library Events and Non-Fiction in Adults, Programs · No Comments ·

Learn about the early day of the women’s suffrage movement in an upcoming lecture by Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner.

“A Woman Presidential Candidate… In 1884” focuses on Belva Lockwood, the first female candidate for President. You don’t need to register, and everyone is invited to attend the program, which will be held on Wednesday, December 6, at 7:00 PM:

A Woman Presidential Candidate… In 1884
Wednesday, December 6, at 7:00 PM

Disgruntled feminists formed the Equal Rights Party in 1884 when both the Republicans and Democrats continually ignored women’s concerns. Presidential candidate Belva Lockwood declared that, “It is quite time that we had our own party; our own platform, and our own nominees,” even if they couldn’t vote for them. As we celebrate the New York centennial of women’s suffrage in 2017, Lockwood provides a lens through which to explore the ongoing creation of democracy in our country. This program is made possible through the support of the New York Council for the Humanities’ Public Scholars program.
