19th Amendment Giving Circle established by Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s great-great-granddaughter

July 19, 2015

Today is the 167th anniversary of the of the first Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, NY., held on July 19-20 in 1848. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of the most prominent suffragists in US history, drafted the “Declaration of Sentiments” adopted at that convention, which is considered the foundational document for the suffrage movement. For the rest of her life, she was devoted to the cause teaming up with Susan B. Anthony. Her daughter Harriot Stanton Blatch followed her mother’s path and also became an innovative leader of the suffrage movement.

We are excited to have as an honorary board member, Coline Jenkins, who is a direct descendent of these great women. She is issuing a challenge to you to join the “19th Amendment Giving Circle.”
