Two women will revisit the impact Haudenosaunee women had on the 19th century women's rights movement during a special presentation at the Seneca Art & Culture Center at Ganondagan. Onondaga Clan Mother Freida Jacques will join Women's Rights Authority Sally Roesch Wagner to present "A Sustainable World of Equality and Peace" on Saturday, February 13.
Together, the two speakers will talk of the inspiration the Haudenosaunee women — who lived in equality — gave to Euro-America women who struggled to gain their own rights. A Haudenosaunee woman, Jacques is a Clan Mother and member of the Six Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy. Wagner is an adjunct faculty member at Syracuse University and founder of one of the first college-level women's studies programs in the United States, at CSU Sacramento.
The lecture will begin at 2 p.m. at the Seneca Art & Culture Center, 7000 County Road 41. The presentation is free with museum admission. For more information, visit ganondagan.org or call the center at 398-6151.
