The program “Women Will Vote, Woman Suffrage in New York State” will be presented by Susan Goodier at the Clinton Historical Society, 1 Fountain St., Clinton, NY, on Sunday October 8, at 2 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.

“Women Will Vote, Woman Suffrage in New York State” is also the title of Goodier’s new book co-authored with Karen Pastorello. The book celebrates the 2017 centenary of women’s right to full suffrage in New York State. Goodier and Pastorello convincingly argue that the agitation and organization that led to New York women’s victory in 1917 changed the course of American history.
