Women's Rights National Historical Park: where ‘rights’ are our mission
Abstract:Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Mary Ann M'Clintock, Martha Wright and Jane Hunt were no ordinary middle-class American housewives, and the Women's Rights National Historical Park in the United States commemorates their activism. Vivien Ellen Rose, historian at the park, is responsible for the historical content of exhibits and programmes. The stated goal of the park is to ‘inspire and educate visitors about the struggle of women for their equal rights’, and this article presents some of the recent activities aimed at attaining those ends.
