Join us at the long-awaited unveiling of Elizabeth Cady Stanton statue on Thursday, August 26 starting at 4 PM (see invitation above for more information)
At 7 PM that evening, Sue Macy, author of “Wheels of Change”, will give a presentation on the importance of bicycling to the suffrage movement.
In the words of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, “The bicycle will inspire women with more courage, self-respect and self-reliance and make the next generation more vigorous of mind and body; for feeble mothers do not produce great statesmen, scientists and scholars.” Her friend and ally, Susan B. Anthony stated, “Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel.”
The presentation will be held in the sanctuary at St. John’s Episcopal Church at 1 N. Market Street (next to the park)
