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 Katharine 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?).

$10 for CHS members, $15 for non-members. Ticket includes admission to the museum’s galleries. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required.

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