Sooner or later the remarkable stories of America's women will come to the big screen. And this special program from Suffrage Wagon Cafe focuses on Nellie Bly's extraordinary contribution to cleaning up public institutions. "10 Days in a Madhouse" is an independent film due for release in 2015, about the same time as the "Suffragette" film from the U.K. The two productions will be in good company says Marguerite Kearns, host of Suffrage Wagon Cafe. She says suffrage activists should be included when examining America's early press women, those votes for women who worked as columnists, reporters, publicists, and editors of suffrage news.
Suffrage Wagon Cafe is a go-to place for information, commentary, and a destination for meeting friends and exploring women's suffrage movement history. Women voters: Choose the vote or lose it. Celebrate women's freedom to vote. Voting rights shouldn't be taken for granted.
Are you a parent who wants to educate your sons and daughters about how women won the right to vote? Are you a teacher interested in content for your classes? Historians, public officials, voters, citizens, and students of all ages follow the Suffrage Wagon. The "Spirit of 1776" campaign intends to restore the women's suffrage movement to its rightful place in American history.
