President Barack Obama, still campaigning in October of 2008, responded to our inquiry of all candidates: “What would you do to promote CEDAW, the Equal Rights Amendment, and the advancement of women?”
Registration is now open for the 4th Biennial Seneca Falls Dialogues, scheduled for October 17-19 in Seneca Falls, New York. A collaborative effort coordinated by WILL and the University Alliance, the Dialogues focus on the continuing struggle for human rights.
The March Call for Dialogues yielded numerous responses. A total of 15 topics were selected by the Alliance for presentation, to be facilitated by groups traveling from as far away as Kent State and Indiana Universities.
Past biennial events have drawn nearly 200 participants, mainly students, professors and women’s studies program directors, and women’s rights activists.
The conference planners have kept registration fees to a minimum. Student registration costs $50. Non-student registration is $125. Tickets for the dinner and/or brunch can be purchased separately (see registration information here).
The event features educational sessions in a networking environment of interactive dialogues. Sessions will take place at the Gould Hotel and the nearby Seneca Falls Community Center. All takes place in historic Seneca Falls, home of the National Women’s Hall of Fame and Women’s Rights National Historical Park. Tours will be available throughout the weekend.
The Women’s Institute for Leadership & Learning (WILL) joined with the
