Anthony-Stanton-Bloomer Statue

Anthony-Stanton-Bloomer Statue

The Anthony-Stanton-Bloomer statue stands on parkland overlooking Van Cleef Lake in downtown Seneca Falls. Left to right: Susan B. Anthony, Amelia Bloomer, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.

Note Bloomer's relatively short skirt over pantaloons. (Stanton wears the "reform dress" also but with a longer skirt.) Bloomer was the best-known advocate of this short-lived reform of women's fashion. The style came to be called the "Bloomer costume," named after her.
