PUSHED ASIDE: Reclaiming Gage
July 20, 2018
2nd performance of commissioned opera about Matilda Joslyn Gage by Persis Parshall Vehar, libretto by Gabrielle Vehar, w/chamber ensemble. CNY native Mrs. Gage was one of the triumvirate, along with Eliz. Cady Stanton & Susan B. Anthony, who founded the women’s suffrage movement in NYS. But she was ‘pushed aside’ when Anthony & Stanton, after 40 years of tireless work, joined with the Temperance movement in order to involve more people in the movement.
