Harriet May Mills Visits Petit – 100th Anniversary of Suffrage

Hosted by: Petit Branch Library

Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Suffrage with Harriet May Mills

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the enactment of the 19th amendment, granting women the right to vote. Harriet May Mills, inspired by early suffragist Lucy Stone, mentored by Susan B. Anthony, regarded as a valued colleague and leader by the most prominent suffragists of the early 20th century, and befriended by Eleanor Roosevelt, worked tirelessly for the rights of women to be not only voters, but active participants in the political process. Join us as Mills talks about her life and work with the suffrage movement. Harriet May Mills, one of the prime workers in the New York State suffrage movement, is portrayed by living-historian Renee-Nicole Felice.
