Lobby for a national women's museumCradle rocking includes what’s happening within the geographic area identified as the “Cradle” of the women’s rights movement in the U.S. (the Finger Lakes of NYS). But cradle rocking is going elsewhere, such as the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Women’s Consortium in Johnstown, NY on March 10th, (see web site) and the March 4th Lobby Day in the nation’s Capitol where advocates are supporting a bill in Congress to create the National Women’s History Museum. More sponsors are needed, as well as your support and participation. See the museum web site for more information.
