Anti-suffragettes topic of club’s presentation
The Woman’s Club of Albany presents a discussion about anti-suffragettes with Historic Cherry Hill Curator Deborah Emmons-Andarawis on May 24 at 7 p.m. at the club, 725 Madison Ave. at South Lake Avenue, Albany, near Washington Park.
The Woman’s Club notes how the anti-suffragettes had their own soundtrack: A number of songs were written for both sides of the issue. Some of them will be performed by Tony Opalka and Mary Le Fleur. The event is free.
Suffrage for women was a divisive issue for the Woman’s Club, founded in 1910. A number of club members, like Emily Rankin (1889-1963), who lived at Cherry Hill, did not agree with universal suffrage, despite their involvement in many progressive civic issues.
