Event description

Description

Join Marilyn Post, Board Member of the Howland Stone Store Museum for a visual journey through the quest for political equality from England to the United States, culminating here in Central New York. Learn about the elements of propaganda woven into the posters produced between 1905 and 1917. View posters of the suffragette movement and discover how, then and now, keeping women's rights in the public eye has been an important part of the Women's Equality Movement. This event is free and open to all.

In 1837 Slocum Howland built the Howland Stone Store in Sherwood, a crossroads between Cayuga and Owasco Lakes to the west and east and Auburn and Ithaca to the north and south with Aurora just down the road. Cayuga Lake gave it easy access to the Erie Canal. The Howland family was prominent in important reform movements throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth century, particularly in the abolition of slavery, education, and women's suffrage.
