'Petticoats of Steel' Re-enacts New York Suffrage Movement


Feinberg Library is co-sponsoring “Petticoats of Steel,” a free theatrical celebration of women’s suffrage, Wednesday, March 1 at 5 p.m. at the Strand Center for the Arts, 23 Brinkerhoff St., Plattburgh.

“Petticoats of Steel” uses primary sources to tell the true stories of New York women and the roles they played in gaining voting rights for all women, moving chronologically from the early 1830s through the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment. 

A 15-minute post-show talk-back session with Capital Repertory Theatre performers will take place immediately following the production.

The production is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is encouraged. For more information, call 518-564-1604.
