Seneca Falls, NY - Women's Rights National Historical Park is pleased to announce that it will show the Ken Burns/PBS documentary Not for Ourselves Alone: The Story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony this Friday and Saturday, March 2 and 3, at 12 p.m.
Not for Ourselves Alone documents the lives of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony and explores how they joined forces to demand equal rights for women. The now-famous friendship of these two pioneers helped to make equality a reality rather than a dream for millions of women.
The film is being shown as part of Women's Rights National Historical Park's first Winter Film Festival. The park exists to commemorate and preserve the events of the First Women's Rights Convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848. "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 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."
Not for Ourselves Alone is approximately 3 hours long and intended for a general audience. All Winter Film Festival movies will be shown at 12 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, November through April, in the Guntzel Theater, located at the Women's Rights National Historical Park Visitor Center at 136 Fall Street in downtown Seneca Falls. Because film lengths vary, visitors are encouraged to call if they are interested in a particular showing. All park programs are free and open to the public. For more information call (315) 568-0024.
