Women of Rochester Dress
Women of Rochester Dress on Display

The Women of Rochester Dress will be on display in the Second Floor Exhibit space of the Visitor Center until November 25th.

Started as a way to present Smart Textiles, this dress grew into a way to showcase the many contributions of remarkable women with connections to Rochester, NY. The body of the dress fabric incorporates the names of over 100 women including the creators. The panels highlight a number of those women from a broad diversity of fields with national or international impact.
The dress features women from Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, to Antoinette Blackwell and Harriet Tubman. It also highlights the contributions of the Haudenosaunee (or Iroquois) mothers, who influenced and provided an example for women's rights activists.
