The event was sponsored by the Monroe County Political Equality Club. (Monroe is the county of which Rochester is the seat and principal city.) Political Equality Clubs served as informal local chapters of NYSWSA, sometimes organized at the county level and sometimes at the city level.
Participating speakers included Jean Brooks Greenleaf, Harriet May Mills, Anna Howard Shaw, and Susan B. Anthony, delivering the keynote address. Special thanks to William Keeler of the Rochester Historical Society.
