I must disclose that I am a big fan of historical fiction, and this book falls in that genre. Regardless of possible bias, A Shocking & Unnatural Incident is engaging first because it is well written, second because it has an interesting plot, third because it has a surprise (to me) ending,...

Today is not simply another Women’s Equality Day. Aug. 26, 2010 marks the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to full citizenship, that is the privilege and responsibility to vote. I looked up the text of the 19th Amendment and found it to be two simple sentences of...

The League of Women Voters has always been a shady entity to me, stuck in a category of leagues I’ve heard about but paid little attention to—like the Junior League. But when Google told me the League of Women Voters turns 90 years old on Valentine’s Day, I read the alert because it...

Ellenville, NY, is more than 200 miles from Seneca Falls, the heart of the women’s rights movement, and both are on the New York State Women’s Heritage Trail. Ellenville residents call their deteriorating Hunt Memorial Building the “heart of the village” and point to its historical...

The shocking struggle for women’s rights

Posted by Georgia Ann Mullen on December 1, 2009 | Leave a comment (0)
How old were you when you heard about the First Woman’s Rights Convention? I was at least 40. Most women don’t know a few small town ladies launched the fight for women’s rights way back in 1848. We aren’t taught about women’s rights or the contributions women made–and continue...
