Are you interested in women’s history? Do you call yourself a feminist?  Let’s talk about the marginalized, the rights of all women, the struggle to vote, and women’s rights today, in a round table discussion, using the Women’s Suffrage Movement as inspiration. Join us to reflect, discuss, and make meaning, facilitated by Giovanna Fiorino-Iannace, Outreach Librarian at the Harrison Public Library.

This program, which is free and open to the public, is made possible through the support of Humanities New York’s Reading and Discussion Program.
