Event Description

“Oh my daughter, I wish you were a boy”: Women Activists’ Voices from the Past Still Speak to Us Today Join the Rochester Medical Museum and Archives and the Rochester Academy of Medicine as Gertrude Buck Hutchinson, DNS, RN, MA, MSIS, CCRN-R (Assistant Professor, Department of Nursing, Russell Sage College) discusses the connections between nursing and women’s suffrage. In the Centennial year of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, it is important to look back to the activists who championed women's enfranchisement. What were the antecedents of the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848? Women such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Emma Goldman, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony, Lavinia Lloyd Dock, and Clara Barton stood up for women's rights and enfranchisement. Dr. Hutchinson will speak about the antecedents, these activists and how their words are still relevant today.
