Women’s Voices and Talents in Dutchess County

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote. On Wednesday JAN-15-20, Millbrook at Home had the pleasure of hosting Bill Jeffway, a member of the Historical Society during our monthly Coffee & Connections event. Dutchess County Historical Society’s Executive Director Bill Jeffway highlighted Women’s Voices and Talents in Duchess County, and role of Lucrettia Coffin Mott. His presentation delves into the history of Women’s Suffrage in the Mid-Hudson Valley. 

According to Mr.Jeffway, it has never been only a man’s world because women have always had a significant role in this country’s history. Mr. Jeffway’s presentation cited examples of women being allowed to vote in New York as early as the 1880s. This includes Union Vale electing Nancy Boyd Duncan as school district clerk. He also cited Vassar College as playing a significant role in the Suffrage movement in the early 1900s with Professor Laura J. Wylie heading up the Equal Suffrage League of Poughkeepsie.  

Attendees were very happy and excited to hear all about Women’s Voices and Talents in Dutchess County and the event concluded with a Q&A session.
