Suffrage Movement News Notes from Suffrage Wagon on Vimeo.

April’s news notes are highlighted in this video that also promotes the next program at Suffrage Wagon Cafe: May 8, 2015. An interview and special feature with Eighty Bug, award-winning performer and songwriter who just won an award for “Spirit of 1776: A Suffragette Anthem.” What are you doing for August 26th, the 95th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution? A great time to plan a trip to the “Cradle” of the women’s rights movement in the U.S. –in the Finger Lakes region of New York State.

Nellie Bly on Google

Have you heard about the upcoming film, “10 Days in a Madhouse”? It’s due for release on September 25th. When I opened my browser to do a search, I almost fell off my chair to see Nellie Bly staring at me as a Google image. More.

Nellie Bly opened doors with her investigative reporting. And what better way to find out more than to stand in line for your ticket when the film opens this fall.

Nellie Bly

When Edna Kearns pounded on the doors of newspaper editors in NYC with her activist columns and suffrage news, her ability to find receptive ears was due, in part, to trailblazing Nellie Bly. The film “10 Days in a Madhouse” is getting attention at the Bentonville Film Festival. Great news! And check out the movie trailer and an audio reading from Nellie’s own writing! A special feature from Suffrage Wagon Cafe.

    Marguerite,   I just noticed that in my recent post to you that I misspelled the name of Nellie Bly.  The spelling of Nelly has been in my family for quite a bit, and this is why the mistake.  If you post anything that I sent you, could you please correct? Thanks,Ken Please check out my website http://womansuffragememorabilia.com/ and my forthcoming book, “American Woman Suffrage Postcards: A Study and Catalog.” http://www.mcfarlandbooks.com/book-2.php?id=978-0-7864-9846-8

  2. I like the collections of Kenneth Florey. Looking forward to what he has in his collection.

  3. I wonder what it takes for Google to feature somebody. Reminded me of “Queen for a Day.”
