Suffrage Centennial with the Women’s Rights National Historical Park - Virtual
Girl Scouts of Colorado is proud to partner with the Women's Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, NY to offer girls a special virtual opportunity to learn about the Suffrage Centennial. Women’s Rights National Historical Park tells the story of the first Women’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY on July 19-20,1848. It is a story of struggles for civil rights, human rights, and equality, global struggles that continue today. The efforts of women’s rights leaders, abolitionists, and other 19th century reformers remind us that all people must be accepted as equals.
A National Park Ranger will talk to girls live from the Wesleyan Chapel. The Wesleyan Chapel is the location of the First Women’s Rights Convention held on July 19 and 20, 1848, in which approximately 300 people gathered to attend. It is considered by many historians to the formal beginning of the Women’s Rights Movement in the United States.
Girls will learn about the history of women’s right to vote and have an opportunity for a live Q&A session with the National Park Ranger.
The session will be recorded and posted online for girls to listen to anytime.
We will use Zoom to host this opportunity. All information on how to join online or via phone will be emailed out to registrants the day before the webinar. Capacity is limited; each individual participant should be registered so we can track capacity. Please do not share the information on how to join with others who have not registered.
All attendees must have a current Girl Scout of Colorado membership.
