Women's Suffrage Exhibit on View at the GTL
A new exhibit at the Gannett-Tripp Library, "Recognizing Women’s Right to Vote in New York State," honors the centennial of women gaining the right to vote in New York.

It looks beyond the traditional women’s suffrage narrative and explores the history behind the movement that made New York state such an important place in the fight for women’s suffrage. The exhibit will be on view in the Gannett-Tripp Library Lobby from April 12 through May 4.

Items include photographs of students who were active in teh suffrage movement, essays published in the college's literary magazine, "The Sibyl", articles from the "EC Weekly", and a scrapbook.
