Senator Gillibrand visited AAG on Friday, December 7 to discuss her new children’s book, Bold & Brave, which celebrates the one-hundredth anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment. Students enjoyed the opportunity to engage the Senator with questions regarding the suffragists in the book, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, Jovita Idár, Alice Paul, Inez Milholland, Ida B. Wells, Lucy Burns, and Mary Church Terrell. Thanks to two generous donors, each girl in Grades 3-8 were given a copy of the beautifully illustrated book to bring home and teach their families about the Nineteenth Amendment.
Thank you Senator for teaching our young ladies about the importance and history of women's right to vote.
