Dear Friends,

I have been re enacting Elizabeth Cady Stanton for several years now, and am passionate about spreading the word about this amazing woman in American history. So few know about her, and I want to change that.  I estimate 90% of the people I talk to  have never heard of her. She was daring and courageous, and the intellectual force behind the beginning of the Women's Rights Movement in the U.S.  I am raising funds to pay for the two camera persons shooting the film, editing, and the rental of the facility.

Risks and challenges

The venue is stunning and we hope to recreate the atmosphere of Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca Falls.
