      Behind-the-Scenes Tour: The Fight for Women's Suffrage in CT

      How did the women of CT work for or against the right to vote? In this behind-the-scenes program, well look at photos, letters and pamphlets from our collection to understand one of the most hard-fought political battles of American history. Youll learn about suffragists like Katherine Houghton Hepburn, Mary Townsend Seymour, and Isabella Beecher Hooker, as well as some CT women who fought tooth-and-nail against women getting the vote (what was up with them?). This tour will take guests into storage and collections areas of our museum not normally open to the public. $10 CHS members, $15 for non-members. Tours last approximately 1 hour and are appropriate for ages 12 and up. Space is limited, and pre-registration is required. Questions? Email Natalie Belanger, Adult Programs Manager, at natalie_belanger@chs.org or call (860) 236-5621 x289.
