Seneca Falls....

....New York, this is one famous place!
Elections are different, as to who's in the race,
since those Old Gals got together, and what not;
they made Congress get off the pot!

Women today, and since 1920, can go and vote,
thanks to meetings held here, please take note.
Also this place is famous in film too.
"It's a Wonderful Life" can visit you.
Top: The Seneca River Falls, the town was named for these.
Middle: The village.
Bottom: "The Bridge", this is the one Jimmy Stewart was going to jump from in the movie.
NOTE: The Women's Rights movement started here in 1848, the women's right to vote came in 1920 (my mother was seven!), and the Equal Rights Amendment (which has failed) was started here as well.
