Behind-the-Scenes Tour: The Fight For Women’s Suffrage In CT

January 18, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm |

How did the women of CT work for – or against – the right to vote? In this behind-the-scenes program, we’ll look at photos, letters and pamphlets from our collection to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. You’ll learn about suffragists like Katherine Houghton Hepburn, Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some CT women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote (what was up with them?).

This tour will take guests into storage and collections areas of our museum not normally open to the public.

$10 CHS members, $15 for non-members. Tours last approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up.

Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Click here to purchase tickets.
