Women’s Suffrage in Connecticut

March 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Registrations are closed for this event

How did the women of CT work for – or against – the right to vote? In this program, we’ll look at photos, letters and pamphlets from the Connecticut Historical Society collection to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. You’ll learn about suffragists like Katharine Houghton Hepburn, Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some CT women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote (what was up with them?).  Presented by the Connecticut Historical Society Museum and Library.

Please register in advance for this in-person program so we can set up sufficient seating.  Register here, by phone at 860-693-5800, or by email at smccusker@townofcantonct.org.
