Call for Stories! DORIS has embarked on a five-year project to celebrate the Women’s Suffrage Centennial in NYS on this day in 1917 and nationally in 1920. We are collecting stories of activist women who have made a difference through their activism and in turn inspire activism today for NYC’s first permanent digital catalogue, Our goal is to collect 20,000 stories by the centennial in 2020.
