Seneca Falls, NY - Women's Rights National Historical Park invites the public to a special program in honor of Women's History Month on Saturday, March 17 at 11 a.m. in the Guntzel Theater, located in the park's Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls. Park Ranger Meghan Barbay will present a talk entitled, "Making Their Mark: Women-related Sites in the National Park Service."

Ranger Barbay's presentation will explore seven National Park sites that specialize in women-themed topics. Among the parks she will discuss are Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park, Clara Barton National Historic Site, and First Ladies National Historic Site. "In addition to Women's Rights National Historical Park, the National Park Service has several sites that honor the significant accomplishments of women," said Barbay. "I am excited to be able to share information about these sites with visitors."

Following the program, visitors are invited to stay for a showing of the film Iron-Jawed Angels as part of the park's celebration of Women's History Month and its first annual Winter Film Festival. The film will begin at 12 p.m. in the Guntzel Theater.

For more information about this event, please call 315-568-0024.
