About An Equal Right to Act: Remembering the Rochester Woman's Rights Convention of 1848

A production of FirstLight Players, AN EQUAL RIGHT TO ACT portrays the historic Rochester women's rights convention of 1848. Attended by such famed agitators as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and Frederick Douglass, the convention provided a unique forum for spirited debate on the right of all men and women to live their lives to the fullest. Their words echo through history. The performance is accompanied by live period music and vintage photos of many of the original participants.
