2017 marks the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York State, three years before the passage of the 19th Amendment. WMHT is celebrating the centennial with a series of interstitials that recognize the influential women from history who have made an impact on our region and beyond.

We invite you to share a woman who has been an inspiration to you. Leave a comment and photo below or use #SheInspiresMeWMHT to share on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
