Votes For Women

Today is the anniversary of Susan B. Anthony's death (1906). She was far from the only important woman's suffragist and American civil rights leader, but she is probably one of the most well known.

So to both honor her memory and also continue with the theme of this year's Women's History Month, Women's Art: Women's Vision... we'd like to draw your attention to an awesome exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum's Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

Votes for Women explores the contributions of Susan B. Anthony and several other important American suffragists, including Victoria Woodhull, the first female U.S. presidential candidate.

In addition to artwork inspired by the suffragage movement, the exhibition includes pieces of history such as photographs, newsletters, banners, recorded excerpts from speeches, and even a copy of Elizabeth Cady Stanton's The Women's Bible. (The exhibit is just a few feet from Judy Chicago's installation The Dinner Party, at which Susan B. Anthony has a place setting).

"Susan B. Anthony", 1892 by Adelaide Johnson.

Votes for Women opened on February 16th and runs through November 30, 2008 in the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Herstory Gallery, Fourth floor.
