Underwood and Underwood, "Suffrage Rally "Wake Up America" Demonstration, April 19, 1917". New-York Historical Society.

 

In 2017, a substantial portion of the New-York Historical Society’s fourth floor will reopen as the Center for the Study of Women’s History, a cutting-edge museum and hub for scholarship. This landmark initiative will be the country’s first permanent, public exhibition and educational center dedicated to women’s history. It will highlight the significance of women’s history to the study of the American past, and demonstrate how women across the spectrum of race, class and culture exercised power and brought about change even before they could access the ballot box. Guided by a committee of distinguished historians, and informed by the latest research, the Center will combine permanent installations, temporary exhibitions, and a vibrant program of talks and debates to enrich the cultural landscape of New York City.
