AAUW of New Jersey Goes to Seneca Falls New York

Coordinated by Central District

Thanks to Central District CoordinatorPatricia Baroska

The Seneca Falls Convention was the first women’s rights convention. It advertised itself as “a convention to discuss the social, civil, and religious condition and rights of woman”. Held in Seneca Falls, NY. This was at the forefront of the Women’s Movement and Women’s Suffrage…

What an Amazing Trip we had….  42 Members from 14 Branches through out New Jersey  participated.  The Camaraderie was intuitive..    We shared a Breakfast of bagels and Munchkins on the Bus and began our well planned  journey to Seneca Falls….   Our first stop was the Women’s Rights National Historic Park Site where the first women’s rights convention took place… Remember this is where social, civil and religious condition and rights of women were discussed and “The Declaration of Sentiments” was signed…  We followed with a lovely Dinner at The Historic Gould Hotel…. A night of slumber was spent at Ramada Plaza in Geneva on one of our New York Finger Lakes…. All can say they had a Lake Front View…   We woke up to an Incredible Sunrise. After Breakfast we  visited the National Women’s Hall of Fame where we viewed information on inductees who transformed America in enduring ways… We visited and toured he Home of Harriet Tubman a newly established National Site…  The Historic Value of this trip was most real and moving for all of us from AAUW NJ….  Before we were homeward bound we stopped at the Beautiful Ventosa Vineyard for wine tasting and a wonderful lunch.  Thank YOU  AAUW NJ…. An incredible  journey we had…
