When Women Lost the Vote: Revolutionary New Jersey, 1776-1807

Sun, Jan 24 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm Free

Some women and free people of color voted in New Jersey during the first three decades of New Jersey’s statehood. The Museum of the American Revolution brings new clarity and understanding to this contentious period in early New Jersey democracy in When Women Lost the Vote. Join a Museum Educator to explore this exhibition from home and consider the implications of New Jersey history for the national struggle for women’s suffrage. Among the artifacts featured is a lady’s pocket on loan from Wallace House State Historic Site.


Admission is free. Email wallacedutch@dep.nj.gov to register and receive invitation to live broadcast. (Please note this presentation will NOT be recorded for later viewing.)
