Widespread female violence against men is found in the records of the 1689 New York uprising popularly known as "Leisler's Rebellion." Indeed, women played a prominent role in the uprising. Voorhees' talk will explore this outburst of activism among New York women a generation after the English takeover of New Netherland.
The event takes place from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the Hudson Area Library, 51 North Fifth Street. A question-and-answer period and refreshments will follow the talk.
