In her book, Suzanne Schnittman sketches the lives of four nineteenth century women's rights leaders and their daughters. The book takes a step back in time to uncover the engaging lives of pioneer women’s rights leaders, Martha Wright, Abby Kelley Foster, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucy Stone who worked diligently for what they believed women deserved. Letters, diary entries, and journals reveal the strong mother-daughter relationships that not only enriched their personal lives, but the women's suffrage movement as a whole.

In this talk, the author will weave together these pioneer women’s universal experiences with those of Adirondack women and families from the past to the present.
