“Abigail Adams” will be presenting “Remembering the Ladies” at Convention Days in Seneca Falls

Remembering the Ladies: From Patriots in Petticoats to Presidential Candidates.  Carol Simon Levin portrays Abigail Adams — who famously wrote to her husband John asking that the Continental Congress “remember the ladies” when drafting new laws for the new nation. He wrote back that she was “so saucy” and he and the rest of the Congress ignored her pleas completely.  “Abigail” then looks forward in time to tell the stories of some of the courageous and tenacious women of all colors and creeds who fought to enhance women’s political participation — from Dolly Madison to the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848, the 1920 passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote and the pioneering female activists and politicians who’ve worked to extend women’s economic, social, and political rights.

Program will be at 2 p.m. on Sunday July 22nd in Seneca Falls NY.
