These extraordinary performers and speakers who embody feminist values and women’s empowerment will come together to highlight the trailblazing suffragist, social activist and women’s rights pioneer, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and respond to the Declaration of Sentiments, a document written by Stanton and others in 1848, which sparked the women's suffrage movement.

This event is ticketed. $40 for general admission. $20 for students. There are limited complimentary tickets for faculty, staff and students of The Cooper Union. To request complimentary tickets, write to David Greenstein, director of public programs.

The event will be co-hosted by The Cooper Union and take place in its historic Great Hall, the same venue where Stanton, Fredrick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony and Abraham Lincoln all spoke.

Located in The Great Hall, in the Foundation Building, 7 East 7th Street, between Third and Fourth Avenues

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
