Suffrage and the Flower City


Once home to historic figures like Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass, Rochester, New York, stood at the center of 19th- and early 20th-century American reform movements. This exhibition looks at the contribution these and other Rochesterians made to the decades-long struggle for woman suffrage, highlighting some of the successes and challenges of that movement at the local level. From the collection of the Rochester Public Library Local History & Genealogy Division.
