Schoolhouse Session: Seward women and feminism 6:00 pm


September 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Although often overlooked because of the national shadow cast by Secretary of State William Henry Seward, the women of the Seward family contributed greatly to the spirit of reform sweeping through mid-19th-century America. Join Dr. Jeffrey Ludwig, the Director of Education at the Seward House Museum, to learn more about the proud legacy of Seward feminism during this centennial year of women’s suffrage. The Seward women that Ludwig will discuss scored many early legal victories, overcoming numerous social and political obstacles, to pave the way for securing the ballot.

This event is free and open to all. RSVP is greatly appreciated so that we make seating accommodations.
