Rewind Rochester

susan-b-anthonyThis weekend the Hyatt Regency is hosting the premiere of Women’s Equality Weekend.

At Seneca Falls Revisited, women are invited to gather for learning, bonding, reflecting and strategizing for the 100-year celebration of the 19th Amendment coming up in 2020.

The conference is designed as a tribute to the historic women’s rights convention of 1848. Rochester was chosen to host because of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass’s monumental contributions and sacrifices for women’s equality.

The conference begins Friday morning with a keynote address from Mayor Lovely Warren and an afternoon keynote from speaker Gloria Browne-Marshall. There will be a plethora of workshops throughout the day and a film presentation of “Geraldine Ferraro: Paving the Way” in the evening.

Workshops and lectures continue on Saturday, including a keynote titled “You are the Answer” from Linda Lattimore, founder of Solutionaries. Natalie Douglas, entertainer and 10-time MAC Award winner, will perform a cabaret show called “Free to Be Me/4 Women Show.”

Seneca Falls Revisited wraps up on Sunday—Women’s Equality Day—from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Several speakers will deliver keynotes, including Lina Young, president emeritus, National Women’s Political Caucus.
