Dear Readers,

Welcome to the Finger Lakes Woman, a new magazine by, for and about the women of our Finger Lakes region of New York State. Women have a long-standing and important connection with this region, for it is here where women’s rights were born, grew stronger and became part of our life in the 21st Century.

The trailblazing women of the Finger Lakes - Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony and others - forged a full agenda of equal rights for women. The Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 was the first women’s rights convention in the United States. It drew about 300 people, including 40 men, and issued a Declaration of Sentiments, a document declaring the rights of women.

Today the Women’s Rights National Historical Park stands proudly in Seneca Falls, and today’s women of the Finger Lakes continue to contribute mightily to the economic, educational social and spiritual life of our region. It is these women - as well as men - that we want to highlight on the pages of Finger Lakes Woman.

The cover story in our latest issue - April/May - is Smith Center for the Arts - Outreach for the Future, describing the Smith Opera House's plans for community outreach and collaboration through the Smith Club Series, Hobart and William Smith's Medley of Taste and local events. The Smith Center for the Arts is a focal point within the Finger Lakes.

Our goal is to educate, inform and empower our readers by sharing information that we can use in our daily lives. We are eager to unveil the Finger Lakes Woman and look forward to an exciting year in the Finger Lakes.

~Linda Hunsicker
