Harriet Tubman home is part of the NPS network of historic sites! SPECIAL EXHIBIT IN SENECA FALLS, NY

Inspiration for visiting Harriet Tubman’s home, plus other historic sites! on Vimeo.

The national historic network, including the home of Harriet Tubman in Auburn, NY, has expanded in recent years. There have been upgrades at the women’s sites in Seneca Falls, NY, as well as the addition of the headquarters of the National Woman’s Party in Washington, DC to the network of locations. The completion of the national Votes for Women Trail, designated by historic markers, will be announced this year.

RADICAL OPTIMISM—THE OVERVIEW CONTRIBUTIONS OF SUFFRAGE CAMPAIGNING

There will be an opening of Radical Optimism: The Enduring Power of the Women Who Won the Vote at the Fall Street Visitor Center on the second floor of the Seneca Falls,  NY NPS museum. Radical Optimism features an overview of generations of women who dedicated themselves to the struggle for women’s voting rights. Spanning more than 80 years—from the first female public speakers to the vote that changed the future for American women—the exhibit brings viewers through the challenges and obstacles facing the suffragists, even those from within their own movement, and explores how they remained motivated, hopeful, and steadfast through years of frustration, conflict, and division.

This exhibit was funded, in large part, by the Preserve the History of Women’s Rights in America Fund, established in 2015 by the Friends of Women’s Rights National Historical Park. The fund was created to protect and preserve park resources and support exhibits dedicated to the legacy of the 1848 Women’s Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, NY, and to the ongoing Women’s Rights Movement in America. Further information is available at the Friends’ website, www.womensrightsfriends.org, or on Facebook (@WomensRightsFriends).

We’re celebrating the Chinese New Year at SuffrageCentennials.com

It’s the Chinese New Year. Add this recipe to your recipe box!

Chinese Sesame Noodles from food writer, Franco Salzillo, food and drink writer!

Have you ever wondered what makes Chinese sesame noodles so tasty? The oily noodles are, without a doubt, one of America’s favorite dishes, and that’s no surprise.

The first Chinese immigrates to arrive in the US brought the dish around the 1850s. Chinese noodles are as American as apple pie, and we’ll show you how to make an easy version that is better than takeout.

Serving four. It takes 10 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound noodles
  • 4 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Chinese rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Chinese sesame paste
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp ginger, finely grated
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp chili oil
  • 4 tbsp roasted peanuts, chopped
  • 4 tbsp chives, coarsely chopped.

Directions:

  1. Add your noodles into a boiling pot of water until tender but firm. Drain and toss with two tablespoons of sesame oil.
  2. In a bowl, add the remaining sesame oil, rice vinegar, sesame paste, soy sauce, sugar, peanut butter, ginger, garlic, and chili oil. Mix well.
  3. Pour the sauce into the still warm noodles and toss until sauce covers noodles. Serve and garnish with peanuts and chives.

Let’s put some perspective on the long and uphill struggle for equal rights by making Chinese fortune cookies.
