History comes to life as dramatic recreations of the First Women’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls in 1848 and other historical events are combined with contemporary segments in which young people engage in candid exchanges about the contemporary roles of men and women.

Early Feminist leaders like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Frederick Douglas are highlighted.

Issues of political equity, traditional women’s roles, marital finances and educational opportunities for girls are still relevant today – almost 160 years later.
