Learn why Eleanor Roosevelt was dubbed 'first lady of the world.'

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.
