Women's Rights

Women’s Rights

The women’s rights working group is a dedicated community of individuals who believe in the equality of the sexes, and the group is particularly interested in intersectionality.

The women’s rights movement symbolically began at Seneca Falls in 1848, right here in Upstate New York. In continuing with that tradition, the women’s rights working group is a dedicated community of individuals who believe in the equality of the sexes. This working group is particularly interested in intersectionality, and is determined to emphasize that aspect of the women’s rights movement in all research, multimedia projects, and events. 1848 is truly not that long ago; the women’s rights working group recognizes both the strides made in that time as well as the setbacks. Through discussions of current and past events and legislation, creative collaboration, and connecting with the local community, this working group intends to attack the phenomenon of “white feminism” and make strides in the public’s awareness of the role of women in government and society as a whole.
