Women's Rights


The Finger Lakes is where it all began for the Women's Rights Movement. Starting in Seneca Falls and spreading throughout the nation, people pushed for equality and women's suffrage.

This is celebrated and remembered in Seneca Falls at the Women's Rights National Historic Park and the National Women's Hall of Fame. These landmarks honor those that led the Women's Rights Movement and celebrate everyone who made an effort in the demand for equality for women in the place where it all began.

The Finger Lakes is also home to the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House, in Rochester. Susan B. Anthony was a leader in the fight for women's rights and their right to vote. Go to the museum for a guided tour, see artifacts related to Susan B. Anthony and even research the events that made up the Women's Rights Movement.
