This year marks the one hundred year anniversary of women's suffrage rights in New York State. To celebrate, the Susan B. Anthony Center joined a floating theater of canalboats for a five-day trip down the Erie Canal. The floatilla - or "Votetilla" - embarked from Seneca Falls, birthplace of the fight for women's right to vote, westward to Rochester.

Along the way, participating reenactors met with residents and alumni at ports along the way, reading speeches prepared by Geva Theatre and talking about the fiery issues of the day back in 1917.
