Journalism Students Visit Suffragette City

Journalism Students Visit Suffragette City

Museum of the City of New York– The Journalism enrichment group took a stroll to the Museum of the City of New York this week  to learn a brief history of women’s suffrage in New York. The guided tour spanned a period of more than 100 years from the early marches to the Me Too movement.

 

A lesson on women’s rights– A rapt group of young women from Innovation’s journalism enrichment group engage in a guided lesson at the Museum of the City of New York’s “Beyond Suffrage: A Century of women in New York Politics”

“It was an eye-opener,”  said group member Laniece Rodgers.  “It gave me information I didn’t know about the history. I thought the intersectionality she was talking about with race and gender really gives women power.”
