TriLinc Celebrates and Honors the achievements of women this International Women’s Day

This International Women’s Day, TriLinc Global honors the first women’s rights conference on July 19, 1848 in Seneca Falls, New York. Lucretia Coffin Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Carrie Chapman Catt organized this first conference laboring for the cause of equal rights for women. The participants approved a Declaration of Sentiments that denounced 16 forms of discrimination against women. This conference launched the modern women’s rights movement, not only sparking women’s suffrage but also galvanizing them into a dynamic political force. The United States Postal Services commemorated the centennial of this convention by issuing “ The 100 Years of Progress of Women” stamp in Senecca Falls. TriLinc salutes these trailblazers and the thousands of women who have followed in their footsteps.
