Dr. Voorhees, director of the Jacob Leisler Institute for Early New York History, speaks on the prominent role women played in the 1689-1691 New York uprising against King James II’s government popularly known as the “Leisler Rebellion.” Numerous references to female political activism are found in the records of the rebellion. Indeed, historians note that women played a prominent role in the uprising. This presentation explores women’s involvement in New York politics a generation after the English takeover of New Netherland in both the local and broader Atlantic World contexts.
