March: Women's History Month

When women congregate over tea, they often make history. In 1848 Elizabeth Cady Stanton and four friends met for tea in Seneca Falls, New York. By the time the teapot was empty, they had planned the first woman's rights convention.

Across the pond, women's history was being made over tea as well.

Hey! Thanks so much for your comment on my blog -- AND for this post! I love it! I am preparing a talk about women, tea, and women's organizing. I'd noted these two elements in my notes, but I hadn't found the second link (across the pond) yet. Thank you!

My pleasure, Steph. Wish I could be there for your talk!

I did a Women's Suffrage Tea last year in May, and it was really fun to research all those amazing women. PBS did a documentary a while ago about Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, that my mom got me for Christmas one year, and the ladies and I watched part of it at tea. I'm going to have to get it out and watch it again this month.

Hello ... Elizabeth U. is that you? It's TeaLoverDenise here from ATAA. Thank you for visiting my blog! I know the documentary to which you refer. I have it on DVD. It's excellent. Always timely to remind us of the struggle for women's rights.
