Afternoon Tea: Elizabeth Cady Stanton - Equality for All
2020 marks the 100th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage so if you don’t know who Stanton is, you should! This 19th- century Seneca Falls pioneer and champion of Woman’s Rights stood out because she had several things other suffragists lacked: a husband, seven children, tremendous writing ability, and a wicked sense of humor. She was also Susan B. Anthony’s best friend and Anthony would not have become famous without her. Learn about her amazing fight to improve women’s education, clothes, and legal rights, and why she has largely been forgotten.
After a performance by interpreter Mary Ann Jung as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, an English afternoon tea will be served at the 1784 Historic House.
