ERA Convention Weekend In Seneca Falls


It is the annual Convention Days weekend in Seneca Falls, this year marking the 175th anniversary of the first Women’s Rights Movement.

In July 1923, the National Women’s Party unveiled the Equal Rights Amendment at the First Presbyterian Church in Seneca Falls. This weekend, exactly 100 years later, advocates from around the world will come together to celebrate the historic milestone at the very podium where ERA co-author Alice Paul first introduced the sex equality amendment.

The Great-Great Granddaughter of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Coline Jenkins was a guest on FLX morning with Ted Baker.

Starting today the ERA Centennial Convention will be held in Seneca Falls. The convention includes a plan to mobilize a national grassroots movement to recognize the ERA. The events begin tonight with a rally at march beginning at 5 pm at the Presbyterian Church on Cayuga Street.
