Join Pamela Vittorio and Chittenango Landing for the opening of the museum's temporary exhibit on the women's suffrage movement courtesy of New York Heritage, as we celebrate the upcoming centennial of women's right to vote in the United States.

Pamela will present on "The Role of the Erie Canal in the Woman Suffrage Movement: From Boats to Votes." In this talk you will find out how twentieth-century women's rights leader Harriot Stanton Blatch led the next generation of suffragists on a "Canal Campaign" to deliver their message of "one woman, one vote" across New York State.
