FRENEMIES FOR SUFFRAGE: STANTON, GAGE, ANTHONY
Monday, March 18, 2019, 7:00 pm – Five Star Bank Gate Branch, 395 Westfall Rd., Rochester, NY
Pioneering suffragists Stanton, Gage, and Anthony had a complicated relationship. Each brought strengths to their working relationship as the “triumvirate” leading the National Woman Suffrage Association – strengths that frequently grated on the other two.
Mary E. Corey, SUNY emeritus professor of history, will discuss the inevitable fireworks of these three dynamic women at Rochester NOW’s March 18 meeting. She will also introduce her new book, The Political Life and Times of Matilda Joslyn Gage, which will be available for purchase and signing.
