Women March in Seneca Falls organizers wholeheartedly agree with New York Governor Kathy Hochul’s “Safe Harbor” remarks of September 27, 2021; the Governor said, “The weight of fighting for women’s rights is in New York’s DNA…So when we all watched as Texas effectively banned abortions in the state and other states introduced similar oppressive laws, I knew as New Yorkers we had to step up to our values.”
Susan Scheuerman, Lead Organizer, says, “We are against roll-backs, bans, and any type of infringement on our reproductive freedoms. As Elizabeth Cady Stanton stated, “self-sovereignty” of our bodies is what we want! We look forward to welcoming Governor Hochul and members of the public to the Birthplace of Women’s Rights in America,once again. The rally is scheduled outdoors, rain or shine. We encourage hand-made signs and expect a peaceful demonstration.”

Attendees are required to wear masks and to practice social distancing.
