July 2020 will mark the 100th Anniversary of Women’s Right To Vote.
This movement got its start in the New York State region of the Finger Lakes. Feminist leaders Susan B. Anthony, Matilda Joslyn Gage and Elizabeth Cady Stanton created the first gathering of women in charming Seneca Falls, NY, between Syracuse and Rochester.
Held in July 1848, this meeting initiated the women’s suffrage movement leading to the 19th amendment, passed by Congress June 4, 1919 and ratified on August 18, 1920, which granted women the right to vote.
Come and visit the Women’s Rights National Historical Park to live the history thanks to new exhibits, special events and historical buildings and do not miss this opportunity to explore the forests, lakes and wine region which once belonged to the Iroquois nation.
