Tonight we have with us Dr. Sally Roesch Wagner, the Founding Director of the Matilda Joslyn Gage Foundation from Fayetteville, NY discussing Sisters in Spirit:  The Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Influence on Woman's Rights.  Sally is a nationally recognized lecturer, author and performance interpreter of woman's rights history.  She will enlighten us tonight on the traditional Iroquois women and their authority since long before Christopher Columbus came to the Americas. Role models indeed, these Iroquois women had absolute rightss to their own bodies, were economically independent, were responsible for planning their tribe's spiritual ceremonies, had the final say in matters of war and peace and had rights to choose all political representatives.  We'll learn the inspiration for these women's rights of so long ago....and more.  Don't miss this!
