August 26th is the women’s 4th of July. And activists observed the national holiday as well. Edna Kearns, for example, and her activist associates traveled during the first week of July in 1913 to take the freedom message to the people of New York City and Long Island. The Declaration of Sentiments was released in 1848 at the women’s convention in Seneca Falls, New York. It is every bit as important as the Declaration of Independence, after which the women’s declaration was modeled.
