Please join the Gillespie Forum and the School of Liberal Arts in welcoming back Dr. Lauren Santangelo '06 for her presentation, "Suffrage and New YorkCity." The lecture will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 1, in Student Center 3101.

In 1917, women in New York State won the right to vote. Dr. Santangelo will explore why the suffrage battle took so long, and trace how activists' ever-evolving relationship with New York City informed campaign decisions and priorities.

As a Marist student, Dr. Santangelo majored in History, and went on to earn her Ph.D. at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. She now teaches in the Writing Program at Princeton University.

This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome!
