By March 5, 2020No Comments

NOTICE: This event has been cancelled.

Given the rapid and uncertain spread of the coronavirus, after lengthy consideration we have reluctantly decided to cancel the March 9 event with Gloria Steinem honoring Haudenosaunee women. Eventbrite will refund your ticket price in full.

Since this was to be a fundraiser for the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation and the American Indian Law Alliance, we would be very grateful if you would consider donating the amount to support our work and help us recover our losses.
If you have questions plesae contact the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation at: or 315.637.9511.Or The American Indian Law Alliance at:

With gratitude for your support and sadness at cancelling,

Sally Roesch Wagner, Founder/Director, the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation
Betty Lyons, Executive Director, American Indian Law Alliance


Featuring Featuring Gloria Steinem, Sally Roesch Wagner, Jeanne Shenandoah, & Betty Lyons

We celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote in the United States — and the fact that women of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy have exercised political voice in this land for 1,000 years. Living in a society in which they were equals, the Haudenosaunee women were the model for early suffragists like Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Matilda Joslyn Gage. Join us as we learn more about this amazing confluence of cultures and honor our Haudenosaunee Sisters for their inspiration and guidance.

$50 – General Admission
$75 – Admission plus signed copy of Sally Roesch Wagner’s The Women’s Suffrage Movement
$200 – VIP admission, includes 6:00pm reception, evening program, and signed copy of Sally Roesch Wagner’s The Women’s Suffrage Movement
