Temporary Exhibit

On loan from the Local History & Genealogy Division, Rochester Public Library, we present “Women Who Made a Difference.” This 5 Panel display features suffragettes and important female figures from Central NY in the fight for Women’s Rights.
We are, of course, tying it in to our own local hero who made a difference: Dr Mary Walker, Civil War surgeon, advocate of dress reform for woman, suffragette and to date, the only woman who has been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Interestingly, she disagreed with many of the women on these Rochester exhibits. She had a very different idea about how to achieve the vote. Come in and see the new exhibit!
