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.

"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex."
