We welcome Ashley Hopkins-Benton, a Senior Historian and Curator of Social History at the New York State Museum to present on “Votes for Women: Celebrating New York’s Suffrage Centennial.” She will speak on how the State Museum will commemorate the 100th anniversary of New York State women winning the right to vote as well as how curators have been exploring artifacts from collections around the state for their exhibit. At the same time, they have been actively collecting materials from the 2017 Women’s March. Learn about the process of researching artifacts for the exhibition, collecting from the Women’s march, and the parallels between the older and new materials.
