    Women's Rights Activist: Martha

    in Women

    Martha comes forth today talking about what brought her into the passion for the activism for women's rights, what she has done with that time frame, and what her hopes are for the future.


    When the Texas legislature passed the Sonogram Law in 2011, Martha noticed a dangerous trend of stripping Texas women of their constitutional rights. Feeling helpless to fight back, she noticed on social media in early 2012, women's rights rallies being planned in all 50 state capitals. She became part of the core group who planned the rally in Austin on April 28, 2012. Martha was also at the capitol for the special session showdown over HB2 in the summer of 2013. Her 22-year-old daughter, Kayla, testified before the House State Affairs Committee, and her own testimony was read by Senator Wendy Davis during her famous filibuster. The rally in 2012 was the catalyst for her local involvement. Less than three years after her first experience in activism, Martha will be sworn in as president of the Texas Democratic Women of Caldwell County on January 19, 2015. Her goal for the group is to have members connect with the community in an effort to re-engage their neighbors in the political process of electing leaders who will serve the people of this great state.

    WOMEN'S RIGHTS MYRA MACPHERSON & JONATHAN AIG

    in Entertainment

    Wednesday, November 19, 3 pm ET, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds is taking a provocative, IMPROPER look at the fight for women’s rights with the award-winning author of THE SCARLET SISTERS Myra MacPherson and with journalist Jonathan Eig author of THE BIRTH OF THE PILL.  


    In this, her fifth book THE SCARLET SISTERS: SEX SUFFRAGE AND SCANDAL IN THE GILDED AGE, award-winning and bestselling author Myra MacPherson returns to the compelling issues of women’s rights addressed in her first book THE POWER LOVERS: THE EFFECT OF POLITICS ON POLITICAL FAMILIES. From history and intrigue to sex and money, MacPherson takes the reader on a jaunty, fun, informative ride through the real-life saga of the sisters Victoria Woodhull and Tennie Claflin, whose radical views threatened the white male power structure of the nineteenth century and shocked the world.


    Jonathan Eig is a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, Chicago magazine, The Dallas Morning News, and the New Orleans Times-Picayune. His work has also appeared in The New York Times, Esquire, and The Washington Post. He has appeared on NBC’s Today Show, NPR, and in the Prohibition documentary made by Ken Burns for PBS. He is the bestselling author of LUCKIEST MAN, OPENING DAY, and GET CAPONE. In his latest book, THE BIRTH OF THE PILL, HOW FOUR CRUSADERS REINVENTED SEX AND LAUNCHED A REVOLUTION, he takes a, yes, sexy look at one of the most important inventions of the twentieth century and how it changed everyone’s lives forever.


    My guests will be joining me at the Miami Book Fair International November 16-23 at Miami Dade College in downtown Miami.
