The Susan B. Anthony Museum and House on Monday, December 14, will present a lecture on a topic contrary to the usual message associated with Anthony. Bruce Klee, former chair of the department of dramatic arts at SUNY Geneseo, will present a lecture entitled, "The Other Woman: Alice Hay Wadsworth, President of the National Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage." The lecture will explore Wadsworth and her opposition to Anthony's cause. Formed in 1911, the NAOWS believed that woman suffrage would negatively impact women's work in communities and their ability to effect societal reforms.
The lecture is part of the Monday Lectures Series at The Carriage House behind the Visitor Center at 19 Madison Street. The lecture will take place at noon, as a catered lunch, and again at 2 p.m. for an informal tea. The luncheon program is $25; the 2 p.m. tea is $15. Reserve seats online at the susanbanthonyhouse.org or call 279-7490 x 10.
