I'll get there sometime on Thursday (driving the 8 hours to Smyrna on Wednesday- doing a bit of shopping there at Books Japan- once I'm checked into the hotel and rest up a bit, then driving the last half hour on Thursday. I'll be costuming, both historical and cosplay during the evenings. I'm definitely bringing my 19th century "Bloomer" dress and my 1918-1920 dress.
I'm working on putting together some First Wave feminist items to go along with the two costumes (I'll be holding a copy of Elizabeth Cady Stanton's 1848's Declaration of Sentiments under the masthead of Stanton and Anthony's 1860's Women's Rights newspaper the Revolution.) And in my 1918-1920 dress A copy of the words of the still yet unpassed Equal Rights Amendment, first conceived by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and petitioned in Congress in 1878, and reintroduced by Alice Paul in 1921, and reintroduced in every session of congress since 1923- the closest it came to passing was in 1979, when 35 of the 38 needed states had passed state Equal Rights Amendments.
This August 18th was the 90th anniversary of the victory in Tennessee which guaranteed the passage of the 19th Amendment (ratified in Congress August 26, 1920), giving women the right to vote. (The vote wasn't the only thing by far 19th century feminists worked on- the vote was only to give us an voice in choice of candidates, they also worked on wage and inheritance law reforms, marital law reform, etc... Stanton especially pushed for changes in the law (being a daughter of judge she learned as a child just how awful the law treated women and vowed to change things.
I'll be wearing my 1790's dress too and I think I'll carry a sheet with feminist statements by women in the 1790's: Abigail Adams, Mary Wollstonecraft, Olympe de Gouges
