July is the anniversary of the first ever Women’s Rights Convention which took place in Seneca Falls on July 19th, 1848. This July, the 20th – 22nd, we celebrate Convention Days: 170 years since the event that changed all of our lives in critical ways. Three years later, another historic event occurred. Two women at the forefront of the women’s movement, met for the first time…
