ABOUT THE EXHIBIT:
In 1892, the women of Binghamton and Broome County joined thousands of other women in declaring their independence from oppression. To assist in this great endeavor, the YWCA was formed to advocate for fairness in the human condition. The YWCA’s declaration of empowerment is that all women and men are created equal and it is their inalienable right to be free from discrimination. They should also be free to pursue opportunities and education.
The Binghamton/Broome County YWCA is still in the forefront of beneficial change in the status of women. Their history is part of the world stage in the fight for the betterment of women and mankind.
The exhibit, which runs from April 6 through May 2, features photographs, objects, and ephemera from the YWCA’s history.
