VoteTilla is a celebration of the 100-year anniversary of woman suffrage in New York State. Boats will take a week-long journey on the Erie Canal, stopping at a number of cities from Clyde to Rochester, to commemorate the history of woman suffrage. Activities include reenactments of speeches by activists, films, a parade, and more.
We talk about the celebrations and the history with our guests:
- Deborah Hughes, executive director of the Susan B. Anthony Museum and House
- Bruce Schwendy, co-chair of the Fleet Committee for VoteTilla, and board member for the Canal Society of New York State
- Jenni Werner, literary director and resident dramaturg at Geva Theatre Center and board member for the ImageOut Film Festival
- Anne Coon, professor emeritus at the College of Liberal Arts at RIT, writer, and independent scholar
