"Songs to Celebrate the Centennial of Women's Suffrage in New York State" at Poughkeepsie Library Boardman Road

In honor of Women’s History Month, Pat Lamanna, Lydia Adams Davis and Sharleen Leahy present “Songs to Celebrate the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in New York State” on Saturday, March 25, at the Boardman Road Library, 141 Boardman Road, Poughkeepsie, from 2:30-4:00.  The trio will trace the Women’s Suffrage movement through its beginnings in the Abolitionist movement; explore its connections to the Temperance movement; and bring us up-to-date to the modern Feminist movement --  all through exuberant, lively, sometimes humorous, and sometimes touching songs.

Pat, Lydia and Sharleen are “herstorians,” folksingers, songwriters  and social activists.  A photo taken by John Fisher is attached. Left to right: Sharleen Leahy, Pat Lamanna, Lydia Adams Davis. This presentation will be both enjoyable and educational.
