Join us at the Blackwells Mills Canal House on Saturday, March 7 at 2:00 p.m. as Linda Barth presents “NJ Women Vote: The 19th Amendment At 100.”
2020 marks the centennial of women’s suffrage in the United States. Why did it take so long and how did we finally get there?
This program will bring to life the struggle of the suffragists in their effort to bring the vote to American women. New Jersey women were a prime force in moving the amendment forward, with marches, protests, and jail time.
Learn about this struggle and the role of New Jersey suffragist Alice Paul in securing the passage of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920. Will the ERA be the next milestone that we celebrate?
The Blackwells Mills Canal House is located at the intersection of Blackwells Mills Road and Canal Road in Franklin Township. Parking is available in the state park lot on Blackwells Mills Road, just west of the house.
