In celebration of Women’s History Month, faculty of the women’s studies program will hold a bus trip to the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, NY on March 25.

According to an email from Dr. Samantha Christiansen, assistant professor of history and director of women’s studies, park visitors learn the story of the first Women’s Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls in 1848. Participants will discuss women’s struggles for gender equality and the significant figures who made it happen, as well as current global issues for women.

All Marywood students, faculty and staff can attend, as well as their friends and family. Admission to the site is free, but the trip will cost $10 for travel, with the exception of meal expenses.

The organizers of the trip also welcome participants from local schools like Misericordia University, the University of Scranton, Wilkes University and King’s College to join.

The bus will depart from Marywood’s campus around 10 a.m. on March 25 and return near 6 p.m. that same day.

Seats will be reserved on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone wishing to sign up or find out more information can contact Dr. Christiansen.
