In July 1848, three hundred women and men were gathered in Seneca Falls, NY at a convention that is now considered the start of the movement for women’s suffrage. This July, join the Library in honoring the movement and considering its connections to today. Connect to the stories of suffragists through theatrical presentations, exhibit tours, and hands-on activities in the exhibition and in the Young Readers Center. Hear about the mothers in the movement, including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, whose daughters took up their mothers’ activism. Examine suffragists’ stories in their own words and contribute to the Library’s mission of preservation and access through the By the People transcription project. Join a conversation café, based on Margaret Fuller’s parlor conversations and suffrage leader Alva Belmont’s teas, to consider enduring questions from the movement.
