Opinion | How the Suffrage Movement Betrayed Black Women

As we plan to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment in 2020, it is important to recognize the role racism played in the movement and how it limited the effectiveness of the amendment in securing rights for all women.

As the United States celebrates the centennial of the 19th Amendment, it’s vital to remember that some of its heroes were less than heroic.

Why should women vote? Because "IT IS FOR THE COMMON GOOD OF ALL."

When this flyer was handed out by activists in 1915 in New York City, they were still two years away from woman suffrage passing in New York State. Suffragists used all kinds of strategies to fight for the right to vote, even pioneering some tactics for the first time. You can see this flyer and more in "Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women in Politics," our exhibition that looks at how women fought for the right to vote in New York and have been affecting political change ever since.

Did you know the extent to which men control Wikipedia?

According to a 2010 survey, 87% of Wikipedians are male, which is reflected in the entries. Edit-a-thons are one major way we can change this and being to make Wikipedia more representational. We are proud to have hosted College Feminists at University of Rochester at our 1st Edit-a-thon ever!!! Together we edited approx 15 entries for Rochester women represented in our collections! #WomensHistoryWednesday #WomensHistoryMonth
