Sunday, October 16“The Manly Privilege:  Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and Woman Suffrage in New York” – Howland Stone Store Museum, 2956 State Route 34B, Aurora.  Dr. Laura Free, history professor at Hobart and William Smith Colleges.    In 1867, New York held a convention to revise its constitution for the first time since women began asking for the franchise.  At the convention, suffrage activists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony confronted New York’s delegates about the question of women’s voting rights, and demanded that New York grant women political rights on the same terms as men.  However, their strategy to challenge the connection between men and voting rights foundered when they encountered the gender-bias of the delegates who declared that voting was ’a manly privilege’ of which women could not partake without significant disruption of traditional family and political life.  7pm.  www.HowlandStoneStore.org  315-364-5587
