Break Every Yoke: Shakers, Gender Equality, And Women’s Suffrage At Shaker Museum Mount Lebanon

VillageBanner3.jpg

In 1917, New York State was one of the first to grant women the right to vote. With the support of a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, Hudson River Bank and Trust Foundation, and private donations, Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon is celebrating that important anniversary with its newest exhibition, Break Every Yoke: Shakers, gender equality, and women’s suffrage. The exhibition is on view in the historic 1829 Brethren’s Workshop via guided tour through October 9.

The exhibition draws on more than 75 artifacts from Shaker Museum | Mount Lebanon’s collections and we went there recently to discuss the exhibition with Shaker Museum Executive Director Lacy Schutz.
