Mia Lazar is a 12 year old student from Blacksburg, Virginia who loves history and became interested in the woman's rights movement when she portrayed Susan B. Anthony in a skit. Along with her family, Mia traveled to Women's Rights National Historical Park to discover for herself the history of the women's rights movement. For National History Day, Mia created a video of her expedition after being inspired by the strong women who organized the First Women's Rights Convention in 1848.
