Reclaiming Our Voice: New Jersey’s Role in the Fight for Woman Suffrage

Lecturer Carol Simon Levin portrays Lillian Feickert, president of the New Jersey Woman Suffrage Association from 1912-1920, who lived in the Plainfields.  As Feickert, she tells the story of the role of New Jersey women in the long struggle for women’s suffrage:

Two hundred and twenty-five years ago, women had the right to vote in only one state, New Jersey, a right they would lose in 1807, and not win back for more than five generations.  New Jersey’s role in the struggle to regain that right is largely overlooked.
