12:00 pm: Lunchtime Talk: Seward Feminism
November 10, 2017 –
Although often overlooked because of the national shadow cast by Secretary of State William Henry Seward, the women of the Seward family contributed greatly to the spirit of reform sweeping through mid-19th-century America. Join Jeff Ludwig, the Director of Education at the Seward House Museum, at the Cayuga Museum to learn more about the proud legacy of Seward feminism. Held in conjunction with the Cayuga Museum’s exhibit on the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New York, all in attendance are encouraged to explore the exhibit with museum staff after the talk.
Attendance is free, no reservations are required.

6:00 pm: Lecture: Seneca Falls: Was It the Beginning of the Woman Suffrage Movement?
November 12, 2017
In 1848, one hundred women and men signed a Declaration of Sentiments in Seneca Falls, New York, asserting that "all men and women are created equal.” Political rights for women, including the right to vote, were one of their main demands. But was Seneca Falls the beginning of the movement for women’s suffrage? This provocative talk, rooted in the lived reality of those who attended the nation’s first convention for women’s rights, argues that, while Americans had debated women’s suffrage since the late 18th century, the Seneca Falls convention touched off the first organized movement to promote it.
Dr. Judith Wellman is Professor Emerita from the State University of New York at Oswego and founder and Director of Historical New York Research Associates. She works with site-based community projects to uncover the history of movements for equal rights for all people, especially women and people of color. She is author of The Road from Seneca Falls: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the First Woman’s Rights Convention and Brooklyn’s Promised Land: The Free Black Community of Weeksville, New York.
$10 Museum members, $12 General public.
