CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- 'Seneca Reflections: 150 Years of Women's Rights,' the next film in the Center for Multicultural Education's Women's History Month film series, will be shown at 9:30 and 11 a.m., and at noon, 3 and 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 8, and Wednesday, March 9, in the Center for Multicultural Education (CME), which is Room 109 in the Maucker Union on the University of Northern Iowa campus.
In this 30-minute video, participants in the 150th anniversary of the First Women's Rights Convention, in Seneca Falls, N.Y., were asked to put the 1848 convention in perspective for a contemporary audience. This is a rare tribute to the remarkable women, past and present, whose lives have furthered the cause of women's rights, according to Lydia Roberts, UNI assistant director for multicultural education.
Refreshments will be provided.
This event, sponsored by the CME, is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Roberts at (319) 273-2250.
