PRESIDENT'S REPORT

This is my first report since I've had the honor of assuming the Presidency of VFA, succeeding Jacqui Ceballos who founded the organization and has been its only president and most passionate guiding spirit for 25 years.  She continues to run the office which typically includes warm and robust communications with the wider feminist community.  She is still the face of VFA and hers are difficult, if not impossible shoes to fill.

So, mindful of her legacy and free-spirited leadership, I decided to follow my own style--which is dramatically different from hers--and hoped for the best.

MARLENE SANDERS

our friend

 

July 15, 2015

MARLENE SANDERS, our friend and co feminist, and for many years the only woman with the position of a television journalist has left us.  She was 84.

Marlene had  covered feminist events from the founding of NOW and was still in contact with many of us. I'd been in touch with her in April and was shocked and saddened to hear of her death.

Very close to Betty Friedan, Marlene first supported the Movement from the "sidelines", but, as a VP of ABC in 1970's she began to take an active part. 

In 1972 she filmed the first "get together" of NOW and the women's liberation movement at a lower East side public school. Sadly, the tape she made of the event was stolen and thrown into the East River by a group who decided they didn't want the feminist movement covered by any TV station.

Tragically, we have said goodbye to many great feminists in the past two years... but VFA will  make sure that they and their legacy, will never be forgotten.

Our condolences to her son Jeffrey, and his family. 

Jacqui Ceballos, VFA Founder

SENECA FALLS
CONVENTION

 

July 19 and 20, 1848

 

Declaration of Rights
and Sentiments



 The organizers of the Seneca Falls Convention were Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Martha Coffin Wright, Jane Hunt, and Mary Ann McClintock. On July 19, 1848, they stood before 300 curious people and presented a Declaration of Rights and Sentiments. That document, modeled after the Declaration of Independence, declared that all men and women are created equal. It demanded equal access to all means of employment and the ministry. And it insisted that women had "the duty…to secure to themselves their sacred right of franchise," or suffrage (the right to vote).
