An Equal Right to Act: Remembering the Rochester Woman’s Rights Convention of 1848, hosted by the Greece Historical Society, was held on March 12, 2019, 7:00pm at Greece Public Library.

An original play adapted from the Proceedings, for FirstLight Players and the First Unitarian History Team. Written and Directed by Ira Srole.

What you hear comes primarily from the published minutes of the Rochester Woman’s Rights Convention of 1848, which was held at the old Unitarian Church on Fitzhugh Street. This was the second such convention convened in history and the first in which the presiding officer was a woman.
