Our story has many beginnings. Since most of us are Americans and New Yorkers, let’s start in upstate New York with the rebellion known as Suffrage - the dawning of the Women’s Rights movement. 170 years ago, women like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, and feminist men like Frederick Douglass and many, many others were awakened to this activism, manifesting it in their historic “Temperance” and “Abolitionist” movements. This awareness and understanding proved that women “holistically” - regardless of race, heritage and culture - have endemic common values steeped in what all Americans have defined and revered as their inalienable rights.
70 years of struggle - filled with heart, humanity, anguish and in some cases death - culminated in August 26, 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to our Constitution. In 1971, our struggle was not yet over and esteemed Activist and Congresswoman Bella Abzug was compelled to rename this day, “Women’s Equality Day” as part of an awareness effort to spotlight the need for yet the next needed step: The passage of an Equal Rights Amendment.
Today, 50 years later, we hope to finally “close” this gap of inequality. With the recent momentum generated via Black Lives Matter, #Me Too, #Times Up and so forth, much like history - movements are a response to stimuli. Whether the catalyst is gender, race, sexual orientation or other, these predestined classifications have inevitable solutions and will require a level of universal “tolerance.”
As we prepare for the Centennial of the 19th Amendment in 2020, we remain confident that we will continue to evolve, learn to work together, collaborate in all areas of society to insure fairness and equality for all.
Join us August 23 - 26 in Rochester, NY to inaugurate “Seneca Falls Revisited: A Women’s Equality Weekend”, an intergenerational celebration of Women, Family and Friends. All are welcome to share, be inspired and network as we celebrate our victories, commonalities and differences.
