Mary Baker Eddy Exhibit Opens in Women’s Rights Park

A new exhibit celebrating the life of feminist Mary Baker Eddy will open on March 7, as one of the “untold stories” at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park. The exhibit is part of the 150th Anniversary Celebration of the First Women’s Rights Convention, held in Seneca Falls, NY, in 1848.

Eddy, who was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame, was an author, a founder and president of a teaching college, a publisher and editor of a weekly and monthly magazine and of a Pulitzer-prize winning newspaper.

Eddy is best known for her book, Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures, described as “one of the 75 books by women whose words have changed the world,” by the National Women’s Book Association.
