Virtual Lecture by Author Angela P. Dodson
January 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Angela P. Dodson’s book “Remember the Ladies: Celebrating Those Who Fought for Freedom at the Ballot Box” chronicles the earliest stirrings of the women’s movement in the United States, arising out of the abolition movement, and traces women’s political gains to the present. Her book, published in hardback by Center Street in May 2017, was released in paperback March 5, 2019. She also wrote the introduction to the 100th anniversary edition of “Jailed for Freedom: A First-Person Account of the Militant Fight for Woman Suffrage,” about Alice Paul’s activism on behalf of the movement, released March 3, 2020, by Black Dog and Levanthal. She will discuss the prominent role that members of the Society of Friends played from the very beginnings of the women’s rights movement to the successful conclusion.
