Declaration of Sentiments 2015

This video was recorded in the historic Wesleyan Chapel at the National Women’s Rights Historical Park in Seneca Falls, NY. In the video, you can read along with a chorus of voices as they recite the Declaration of Sentiments, the foundational document of Women’s Suffrage. A series of still images record the reverence and excitement of the speakers who were standing at the podium where Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott once stood. Many of the speakers were in town to present at the 2014 Seneca Falls Dialogues Conference.

The video was shot by faculty and students from Hobart and William Smith Colleges (HWS): Leah Shafer, Molly Naef, Amber Williams and Julia Yenco. Funding for the project was provided by the William Smith Deans Office and the HWS Office of the Provost.
