This fall marks the 100th anniversary of New York State signing women’s suffrage into law. As we mark the historic milestone of our ancestors’ activism we recognize that the struggle for gender equality is far from over; and today’s women know it. In January 2017 we saw the largest protest in US history: the Women’s March on Washington with sister marches all over the country.
