About this Event

The Historical Society of Rockland County Is Open to the Public with a New Exhibition

Inside Out: Women, Fashion

& The Fight for the Vote

A Women's Suffrage Centennial Exhibition

When: August 19, 2020, through 2021

Where: HSRC History Center, 20 Zukor Road, New City

Admission: $5/person; children under 7 are free (due to COVID-19 conditions, admission is limited, and prepaid tickets are required)

The struggle for suffrage affected American women’s lives both before and after they won the vote. In this special Centennial Exhibition, we mine the Historical Society of Rockland County’s collections to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage.

Fashion served women as social currency for centuries and has been used to oppress as much as to express. By 1920, however, women were using fashion to proclaim their freedom and political independence. What may have been the most significant evolution in American women’s fashion happened alongside the ratification of the 19th Amendment as the New Woman proudly took her place in American society, dressed to the nines.

The HSRC's gallery exhibitions run from August 19, 2020, through 2021. They will be open to the public as COVID-19 conditions permit. In the months of August -October 2020, admission is by advance reservation only, Wednesdays-Fridays between 1 and 4 pm.
