This year marks the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in the U.S. Join us to see an exhibit on the 70-year struggle for woman’s suffrage in New Jersey and the nation. Learn about the many women, White and African American, who fought to make it happen. Meet NJ activist and suffragist Alice Paul (interpreted by Alisa Dupuy), and see a 1913 vintage suffragist’s dress. The League Women Voters will be on hand to talk about their work since 1920 to expand voter access.
