100th Anniversary of NJ Women Vote: Slow Roll

Women and girls celebrated their new freedom to move around in the world when they began riding bicycles. It was believed that bicycling was the catalyst for giving women a fuller sense of their role in life. Susan B. Anthony thought bicycling had “done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world.” In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote, the NJ Suffrage Slow Roll, where cyclists can bicycle to sites along the New Jersey Women’s Heritage Trail is scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2020 at Historic Smithville Park in Eastampton, NJ.
