In honor of Women's History Month, I am terrifically pleased to welcome author, Susan Savion to this week's Voices program. We will be speaking about her new book on Matilda Joslyn Gage, Quoting Matilda. Though Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are well-known historical names, that of Matilda Joslyn Gage usually evokes the response, "Who?" Yet, this amazing woman contributed equally for many years as part of a triumvirate with Anthony and Stanton. Matilda was involved in the women’s movement from 1852 until her death in 1898. She was best known for her feminist and suffragist activities, but she was “written out of history” for many years, because she was considered by her peers to be too radical in all she proposed to accomplish. Inspired by the Haudenosaunee women who were her neighbors and who adopted her into their Wolf Clan, she was determined to gain the rights of property ownership, governance and equality of power for her 19th century sisterhood. She fought for the rights of Native Americans and enslaved persons and anyone else impacted by government control.
Join us for what promises to be an engrossing conversation! Live on Wednesday, March 11th at 7 pm Eastern, 4 Pacific and then as an archived recording at this same link.
