TENEMENT MUSEUM: The Women Who Made New York

  • Tenement Museum 103 Orchard Street, New York NY 10002 (map)

Hillary Clinton’s historic run for the presidency of the United States offers an excellent opportunity to celebrate the women politicians who helped pave the way. Join Julie Scelfo, author of The Women Who Made New York, as she discusses three political trailblazers: Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman in the US Congress, Bella Abzug, the second Jewish woman elected to Congress, and Geraldine Ferraro, the first woman from a major party to run for vice president. Liz Abzug, Bella’s daughter, and Donna Zaccaro, Geraldine’s daughter, join the conversation.

Seating is first-come, first-served. Doors will open at 6 p.m. Books will be for sale with a 15% discount. If you have any questions, contact Laura Lee atllee@tenement.org or (646) 518-3032.
