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.

The Irondequoit Public Library will once again be a drop-off location for the Willow Center’s Purple Box Campaign. The donation box for the Purple Box Campaign is located on the 1st Floor by the entrance to the Children’s Room.

Willow Center families have survived trauma and abuse, and are just beginning their journey to a safe and empowered life. Their lives have been disrupted by violence, and by relocation. The children in our shelter are away from everything familiar to them – their home, their toys, their friends. One in three women and one in four men are affected by domestic violence. Over 70% of these crimes are witnessed by children. A simple gesture of providing new toys during can give a child in crisis a sense of normalcy and hope.

For more information about the Willow Center or the Purple Box Campaign, please contact Lisa by phone at (585) 232-5200 (x230) or email at LisaH@WillowCenterNY.org.
