The Wild Women of 2nd Street!

Throughout the 19th and early 20th century, Troy was home to several progressive-minded ladies who, while politically divided, worked together to foster women’s education, debate a woman's right to vote and advocate on behalf of other reforms such as abolition and child welfare laws that encouraged and supported women. Learn about some of these fervently fascinating females including Betsey Hart, Emma Willard and Olivia Slocum Sage.
