Arise Women of the Nation: Staten Islanders in the Fight for Women's Right to Vote

Planning of a temporary exhibition and public programs exploring the role of Staten Island in the creation and passage of the 19th Amendment.

The Staten Island Museum requests a $40,000 grant to support planning for Arise Women of the Nation: Staten Islanders in the Fight for Women’s Right to Vote, a single-site temporary exhibition in 2020 to mark the National Centennial of the 19th Constitutional Amendment. This exhibition will highlight the ingenuity and dedication of Staten Island suffragists in both the national and regional movement. The Staten Island Museum seeks to convene a panel of five experts who will examine the contributions of Staten Island’s suffragists and refine the exhibition themes in the context of the broader suffrage narrative; activate exhibition design; and inform visitors about the historic movement’s pertinence to today’s civic engagement. The advisers will present their findings in a public panel discussion in March 2020 for Women’s History Month.
