Adams: Women’s Rights Movement subject of talk

Friday September 7, 2012

The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum, 67 East Road, will host a talk on mothers and daughters in the Women’s Rights Movement, 1847-1903, by historian, writer and activist, Suzanne Schnittman, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9.

A wine and cheese reception will follow the talk. The public is invited to attend free of charge.

Mixing humorous stories with lesser-known facts, Schnittman reveals surprises she discovered about America’s Founding Mothers and their daughters from letters they exchanged during a 100-year period in America.

In her talk, Schnittman focuses on four prominent women activists of the 19th century who gave birth to at least one daughter.
