Women's Rights National Historical Park continues its second annual Winter Film Festival by showing part two of the documentary film Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony on Friday, March 29, and Saturday, March 30, 2013.
Directed by film maker Ken Burns, Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony explores the friendship of these two reformers as they worked together to demand equal rights for women. The running time of part two of Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony is 90 minutes.
Women's Rights National Historical Park commemorates and preserves the sites associated with the First Women's Rights Convention, held in 1848 in Seneca Falls. "We are proud to be part of the National Park system, and we invite everyone to join us in celebrating our shared history and culture through film," said Superintendent Tammy Duchesne. "The Winter Film Festival is a great way to learn more about our nation's history," added Superintendent Duchesne.
The park is also showing the film as part of its celebration of Women's History Month in March. "We are inspired by the courage of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and countless other women and men who struggled for equal rights in this country," said Duchesne. "Their stories continue to resonate with people across the globe."
All Winter Film Festival showings will occur at 12:00 Noon on Fridays and Saturdays at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center, located at 136 Fall Street in Seneca Falls. All film showings are free of charge.
