Join us on October 25 for a virtual conversation about power, history, and action. What is the state of women in politics in New York? At the Tenement Museum, our exhibits and tours examine the political lives of women in the past and how it was often shaped by their work at home or organizing in the streets. Generations later, women could be political in public office. How did inspiration flow between generations, and what did political action look like for women at different moments in the city’s history?
Political scientist Dr. Christina Greer, State Assembly Member Emily Gallagher, and others discuss recent elections and the past and future of women in political office on this Tenement Talk, livestreamed to YouTube from inside the 1960s living room of the Saez Velez family.
This program is part of our series looking at the complexities and tensions of the American Dream
