Rebecca Now brings Elizabeth and her history making speech to life.
Women who fought for their rights in the 19th century had tremendous courage and persistence. They had no role models, and yet, they collaborated and strategized, and spoke out about the injustice that women were treated like lessor beings, without the right to their wages, an inheritance, and even their children. All were the property of their husbands. Elizabeth Cady Stanton gave an impassioned speech in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Women’s Rights convention, which is credited with launching the movement for women’s rights, including the right to vote.
“Rebecca Now performed as Elizabeth Cady Stanton for a program I coordinated at the Missouri History Museum. Her performance was illuminating and engaging. Our guests responded well to her well-researched and entertaining performance. The Museum would love to Rebecca back in the future!” –Aaron Poelker, Public Programs Coordinator, Missouri History Museum.
