The Stanton-Anthony Lecture Series


I had the great honor of keynoting the Susan B Anthony/Elizabeth Cady Stanton Lecture at the University of Rochester’s Meliora weekend, October 15, 2010. As you can see, I got into the spirit by wearing my Susan B. Anthony outfit, black clothing with a red shawl. The 19th century women’s civil rights leader always wore black and her red shawl became her identifying trademark.
After the luncheon keynote, we went on to the 2010 Stanton/Anthony Conversations: “How Women Use Power: Transforming Leadership” at the University of Rochester’s Interfaith Chapel during Meliora Weekend October 15, 2010.

Anthony Center director Nora Bredes (right) moderates a panel on women and power with activist and author Gloria Feldt, George Washington University professor Allida Black and American University associate professor and director of the Women and Politics Institute Jennifer L. Lawless.
