Online Exhibits

"Crusade for the Vote"  An online exhibit and online education resource from the National Women’s History Museum

“From Seneca Falls to the Supreme Court, New York Leading the Way” An online exhibit from the Hall of Governors in New York. Description: Women’s history in the Empire State goes hand in hand with New York’s history as a progressive leader. From education to healthcare to civil equality, women have been the driving force behind almost every reform movement in our state. While they may not have always been the individuals passing the laws, women were writing the policies, organizing campaigns and generating public awareness. For far too long, these efforts were often omitted from the history books, undermined or forgotten completely. This exhibit will tell the stories of some remarkable women and how they led New York and the nation
