This presentation will include vintage photographs and discussions of various aspects of the movement, focusing on the involvement of Long Island women.

Presented by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Islip Area Branch, the talk features stories of courageous and militant suffragists and their political activism, as well as the activities of the anti-suffragists. As the current generation addresses and advocates for issues affecting women, this presentation provides the opportunity to reflect on the role history and historic sites play in defining the future of women’s rights.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Visitors age 16 and over must bring a photo ID.
