New York State

National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House

Groups can come and hear the story of this historic woman and her lifelong struggle to gain voting rights for women, and equal rights for all. The Museum includes the headquarters for the National American Woman Suffrage Association, which was home to Susan B. Anthony during her most politically active years, and which was also the scene of her arrest for voting in 1872. The Change It! program teaches groups about different methods of reform through a house tour, and participation in a mock demonstration to protest the denial of rights to women in the United States during the 19th century. A contemporary issues version of this program is also available.
