Join us for a conversation with Elizabeth Cady Stanton, portrayed by Dr. Melinda Grube. Known as a founder of the women’s rights movement for her work organizing the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention, Elizabeth Cady Stanton is celebrated as a hero for women’s equality. Stanton dedicated over 50 years of her life leading the fight to secure women’s rights to vote, own property, attend college, and more. Her legacy is also complicated by the way she handled the issue of race in the women’s suffrage movement. In this Melinda Grube will engage in a historical dialogue as Elizabeth Cady Stanton to discuss her life and work as a suffragist. The reenactment presentation will be followed by an discussion facilitated by Dr. Grube as Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
