Location: Women's Rights National Historical Park tells the story of the first Women's Rights Convention held in Seneca Falls, NY on July 19-20,1848. It is a story of struggles for civil rights, human rights, and equality, global struggles that continue today. The efforts of women's rights leaders, abolitionists, and other 19th century reformers remind us that all people must be accepted as equals.

Position Description: ​​In 1848, five women convened the First Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls, NY, and launched a movement for equality that continues today. This gathering marked the first time in American history that women and men publicly demanded women's right to vote. As the National Park Service starts to prepare for the 250th anniversary of the founding of our country, our park is starting to think about ways that we can tell a broader and more inclusive story. A Research Assistant would support this commemoration work and create legacy materials by engaging with historic research into the husbands of the women who organized the 1848 Convention. They will compile research materials on each of the husbands, including their relationships to reform movements of their time.

The Research Assistant will present a training to park staff on the men and their role in reform, with a focus on abolition. They will compose a series of social media posts, a brief web/shared content article, as well as present the discoveries during an interpretive program to the public.
