This year’s Rye Historical Society luncheon was held in recognition of the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York. Guest speaker Professor Emerita Barbara Winslow of Brooklyn College, CUNY presented a detailed history of the state suffrage movement and highlighted some of the courageous women who made this a reality three years before the United States passed the 19th Amendment.

 

More than a few good women were among the guests at the luncheon, held March 2 at American Yacht Club.
