Join us to celebrate the 170th anniversary of the first Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls!
This special program features an afternoon talk by author Susan Goodier, Ph.D. and a tea highlighting desserts made from historic suffrage recipes. Dr. Goodier will present Votes for Women: Examining the Woman Suffrage and Anti-Suffrage Movements through Political Cartoons. Using the medium of 19th and 20th-century political cartoons the history of American women and their struggle to gain the right to vote will be examined. Following the talk, a light refreshment of tea will be served along with a selection of deserts made from historic recipes published in cookbooks produced as fundraisers for Suffrage organizations.
