In honor of International Women's Day in 2017, the biography of women's rights pioneer Elizabeth Cady Stanton became a Google Expedition. It was created by Coline Jenkins, Stantonís great-great granddaughter, and Debra Kolsrud of Johnstown, New York, to share Stanton's legacy and inspire social justice activism today. The title of the tour is "Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Women's Rights" and it is available free to anyone. 
 
Google Expeditions are virtual reality tours, designed to support educators in capturing the interest of 21st century youth.
 
To access the tour, begin by logging-in to a current gmail account or create a new account, and then search for "Google Expeditions" to download the free app (only available for mobile devices). To view the tours from the Google Expedition site, select "guide" and scroll through the choices. You can read the tour content on screen as you follow the 360-degree panoramic images and added photos that enhance the narrative. 
 
Kits are available for educators who wish to purchase cardboard V-R boxes so students can view the tour as "explorers" while the teacher reads aloud the text (see photo) as "guide" for the downloaded tours.
