WomensActivism.NYC Story Collection with the Department of Records

Thu, Dec 6, 2018 @ 3:30pm - 6:30pm

Share your story with WomensActivism.NYC, a project of the Department of Records and Information Services. WomensActivism.NYC is a space where women from all communities can have their histories publicly acknowledged.

 

WomensActivism.NYC is a five-year celebration of women’s activism and the Women’s Suffrage Centennial. The NYC Department of Records and Information Services created WomensActivism.NYC to honor the anniversary of women winning the right to vote in New York State in 1917 and in the United States in 1920. Their goal is to create a permanent New York City archive of women who have made a difference through their activism and in turn inspire activism today. The women in the archive may be famous or unknown. They may have lived in the past or may still be working today.
