Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton – did not actually achieve their goal, since they were both dead before the suffrage victory.  So who was responsible for winning the vote for women and why was NY the first state east of the Mississippi to allow women full suffrage in all elections?  This talk will move beyond the well-known Seneca Falls Declaration of 1848 to introduce a new set of strategies and cast of characters:  Miriam Leslie, Carrie Chapman Catt, Mrs. Russell Sage, Mary Garret Hay, and a flock of leaflet-dropping aviatrixes, among others.
