From Seneca Falls to the Supreme Court - Exhibit at the State Capitol

Author: Communications Committee/Thursday, April 5, 2012/Categories: General

Women’s history in the Empire State goes hand in hand with New York’s history as a progressive leader. From education to health care to civil equality, women have been a driving force behind almost every reform movement in our state.

This past week, in honor of Women’s History Month, Governor Cuomo opened a new exhibit at the State Capitol honoring the remarkable women who have led New York and the nation. Explore our online exhibit featuring these women’s stories by clicking below:

Seneca Falls and Supreme Court 

Governor Cuomo hopes this exhibit will inspire New Yorkers to learn more about our state’s progressive history and the outstanding women whose accomplishments contributed to a variety of fields. The legacy of New York State women who made history – like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Ruby Dee, and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor – is one of strength, determination, character and courage.

We pay homage to this progressive legacy as we continue our reform efforts to make this state a greater state for all New Yorkers.

We hope you have a chance to learn more about these women's accomplishments up close next time you’re in Albany. If you would like to visit the exhibit in person, click here to learn more about Capitol tours.
