Our best wishes for the New York State Museum and its terrific job spreading the word about the 2020 suffrage centennial celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. The “Spirit of 1776” suffrage wagon used by Edna Kearns (1882-1934) and others will be on exhibit during 2020. Follow the suffrage wagon to keep yourself updated.


Nellie Bly made a splash with her coverage of underground reporting in a mental hospital. Follow some of her writing. Bly also covered the first wave of the women’s rights movement, as did Edna Kearns and others who kept women’s rights issues before the public.
