THANK YOU FOR ATTENDING
The Friends of Susan B. Anthony's Annual Women's Equality Day Luncheon.
Standing UP for Women's Rights
On Saturday, August 26, 2023, we celebrated the 175th anniversary of the women’s rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York in 1848 and the 103th anniversary of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (woman suffrage) 1920. We invited the community to this event, which began as an informal birthday party for Susan B. Anthony over forty years ago, and is now held in conjunction with the anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. The luncheon featured an award presentation and a speaker.
