Artist from Seneca Falls, NY passionate about the suffrage Big Three

Katherine Pfeffer Pross is an artist and painter from Seneca Falls, New York who considers herself “intensely concerned about equal rights and peace in the world.” She says: “I create works that are thought provoking with messages of inspiration and enlightenment.” One of her favorite movies is “Iron Jawed Angels.”

In this painting Pross features Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Matilda Joslyn Gage, who are considered The Big Three movers and shakers of the American suffrage movement. You may have heard about Anthony and Stanton. Matilda Joslyn Gage is less well known, although her participation and commitment to the cause is increasingly coming to the forefront. This is due, in great part, to the work of scholar Sally Roesche Wagner, director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation in Fayetteville, New York.

    Makes sense that the spirit of the women who sat around a kitchen table and planned major social change would inspire artists of today. Right on…

    Is it possible for Suffrage Wagon News Channel to do some posting about how to hold events in our community? There’s a need to teach our children if they aren’t getting it in school because of all this testing, testing, testing. We need people interested in being citizens and learning how to become leaders. God forbid, if we don’t, Facebook will be covering the melting of the ice caps.

  3. A lot here on this blog I’m just recently becoming aware of.

  4. Nice site you got here! Very informative.

  5. Makes me want to go to Seneca Falls. Have never been there. I visited the national park web site and was surprised at how much material they have available. Are theyn recovered from that big storm yet?
