Women on the Move Event Series
September 9, 2017 to January 13, 2018
Join us at ArtRage this fall as we hold an event series in honor of the 100th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in NYS. The Suffrage Centennial offers us a time to look back and reflect on the accomplishments women have made and challenges they have faced in the struggle for gender equality.
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. We hope this series will offer the community a time to come together, acknowledge, discuss and be inspired to work for a more just society for all.
