Join us for a one-of-a kind program to honor the Centennial of Women's Suffrage in New York State

Women’s Rights Celebration, September 23, 11:00 am-4:00 pm

Genesee Country Village & Museum

Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner will look beyond women’s gaining the vote and dialogue about the issues of equality raised by our suffrage foremothers in her presentation “The Rest of the Story of the Suffrage Movement.” This engaging presentation will be followed by a luncheon of foods made from recipes in suffrage cookbooks. Published by suffrage associations throughout the nation between 1886 and 1920, these cookbooks were a way to raise money for their cause.  Participants will dine on a variety of dishes, including Rebel Soup and Salmagundi served with Suffrage Salad Dressing.

A selection of Dr. Wagner’s books will be on sale at the museum’s Flint Hill Store and she will do a book signing there after the luncheon.  Admission to the historic village is included in the program and activities focusing on lesser known equality efforts made by women in their daily lives during the 19th century will be highlighted throughout the day.

The presentation begins in the Meeting Center at 11:00am with lunch following at 12:00pm. Pricing is $45 and museum admission is included /$40 for museum members.
