Documentary discovers 'New York Suffrage Stories'

Feb 1, 2021

The names Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are well known for their roles in the battle that earned women the right to vote. Others, of course, contributed to that effort and four of those women will be featured prominently tonight at 9 when WNED PBS airs "Discovering New York Suffrage Stories."

Executive Producer Lynne Bader says the stories highlight the challenges and tensions at the core of suffrage movement. The deep research behind the documentary prompted producers to create a website that offers other films, stories and resources on the women's suffrage movement.
