Cheers to the
100th Ann. of the 19th Amendment,
IWD and, the ongoing efforts of all people
striving for equality and excellence
for all genders, races, and walks of life.
And of course to... CRAFT BEER!
Women in Brewing
In an industry that is highly inhabited by men, please don’t forget that it was women that fueled the beer brewing craft 4,000 years ago. In fact, female brewers were called ‘brewsters.’
From Mesopotamia to Colonialism, women played the strong role in the beer making.
Fast forward, the number of female brewery owners, brewmasters, and brewery workers continues to grow, and we are excited to use local breweries to help us celebrate Women on this inaugural event.
The Women’s Rights Act of 1920
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment being passed in the US Constitution which gave women the right to vote. The Fight for Women’s rights and suffrage began on a national level in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Convention. Revolutionary women such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, and, later on, Susan B. Anthony brought these issues to public awareness and pursued the voting rights until their certification in 1920.
On November 2nd, 8 million women voted
across the United States.
International Women’s Day
“The Focal Point in the Movement for Women’s Rights.”
The Day also represents:
*Civil Awareness Day
*Women’s and Girl’s Day
achievements of women.
Some countries still use this day as a platform of protest, while others celebrate Womanhood.
Drink Like a Girl considers IWD a opportunity for both advancement and recognition of equality and strength.
“An Equal World is an Enabled World.”
Real Men Support Women
It is important to note the Drink Like a Girl is enthusiastic to support and celebrate all of the men who have come out for the event as well. With each other striving for equality, growth, and success, we are stronger. Thank you to all of the men in our lives and in the community. This has been an important force in the women’s suffrage since the beginning. At the Seneca Falls Convention, men were beginning to join the cause, including Frederick Douglass. Today this small group has gown tremendously and are crucial to gaining equality across the world.
Geneva, New York & the Finger Lakes
We have chosen Geneva New York as the host city for the Drink Like a Girl Event for multiple reasons.:
#1. We are from there and have always been surprised to hear that people in neighboring regions, cities, bars, and gyms have not had the pleasure.
#2. Seneca Lake: One of the eleven Finger Lakes that have rapidly become one of the most visited tourist regions in the country. What a perfect atmosphere to run along this beautiful lake as you race towards your new time and new beer.
#3. Downtown Geneva: Enriched with independent businesses, and noted for it’s cuisine. This is a great opportunity to check out what Geneva’s commerce has to offer while strolling their streets and drinking well crafted beer.
#4. Geneva is rich in history. And Women’s history. Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to receive a medical degree, did so at Geneva Medical College – now Hobart & William Smith Colleges.
#5. In 2015, Geneva, NY was proclaimed an All-American City by the National Civic League.
#6. The Finger Lakes and Greater Rochester Region is home to over 80 Craft Breweries and rising. We hope that you will enjoy all of the representatives at our event
