A note from Jen: I typically avoid sharing politically related topics here. However, I have written many times about Seneca Falls and its rich history. This is a nonpartisan march and organizers are expecting 100s of women to participate. The historical significance of women convening at the birthplace of the woman’s rights movement to create a visible sign of solidarity, to be inspired, and to inspire others to be active in supporting their beliefs is undeniable.
