Lecture on Women’s Suffrage in Hoboken

By David Wildstein, February 09 2020 10:47 pm

A professor from New Jersey City University will deliver a lecture at the Hoboken Historical museum later this month, “Women’s Suffrage, 1920: New Jersey Women Regain the Right to Vote.”

The program commemorates the 100th anniversary of the New Jersey Legislature voting to ratify the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote.

Dr. Carmela Karnoutsos will kickoff a lecture series that highlights several famous New Jersey women, discussing the achievements of, among others, Lucy Stone, Mary Philbrook, Alice Paul and Caroline Stevens Wittpenn.

The program will be held on February 23 at 4 PM.
