KSFR public radioListen to the interview with Marguerite Kearns on public radio that features director Timothy Hines and producer Susan Goforth of “10 Days in a Madhouse.” It’s about Nellie Bly’s undercover investigative reporting in a mental hospital, an expose that rocked the nation before the turn of the 20th century. Nellie Bly opened the doors for women in journalism. Nellie Bly covered the women’s suffrage movement. Her interview with Susan B. Anthony presented the activist in ways that no other reporter had been able to reveal.

Episode #7: Wilmer Kearns courts Edna Buckman with his storytelling on Vimeo.

We’re moving toward the day when Edna, Wilmer and Bess (Edna’s best friend) are active in the women’s suffrage movement. But long before that, we meet them in 1903 when they’re young. Their direction in life is still in formation.

MARY WOLLSTONECRAFT INTERESTED THE YOUNG WOMEN

In previous posts, Bess got in trouble after her parents discovered copies of Mary Wollstonecraft’s books hidden in her bedroom. Edna also read Mary Wollstonecraft. Then Wilmer entered the scene and he loved talking about his favorite author, Henry David Thoreau. The writer understood the art of walking and how he considered every walk a “crusade.” Edna listened carefully.

HENRY DAVID THOREAU INTERESTED WILMER KEARNS!

Wilmer agreed with how Henry David Thoreau needed leisure, freedom, and independence. For Thoreau, walking represented more than exercise. It turned into an adventure, an occasion that brought air and sunshine to his thoughts.

Thoreau loved climbing a tree, studying the landscape, and discovering new horizons during his walks. He listened to the quiet that wasn’t really soundless at all. While walking he contemplated the known and the unknowable. He studied the moon and buildings in varying shades of light and darkness. Thoreau said he ventured out into the world for a walk with no idea of direction. But he found a new way of traveling and being. Then he added: “In short, all good things are wild and free.”

Wilmer’s in the process of wearing down Edna’s reservations about relationships. But will he be successful in winning Edna’s heart? Stay tuned!

Videos: Wrapping up our first year at Suffrage Wagon Cooking School!

Suffrage Wagon Cooking SchoolOur first year at Suffrage Wagon Cooking School is coming to an end. This is the last day for visiting the farmers’ market where, over time, the refrigerator’s produce bin has been crammed with food fresh from the fields. We love to cook with fresh local ingredients!

Our Irish wood-burning cook stove has been a hit with cooking school students and fans. During 2015 we’ve baked apple pie in it, as well as butternut squash soup.

A demonstration on how to make French onion soup is coming soon from Suffrage Wagon Cooking School. Keep your produce bin stocked with fresh onions. They come in handy when you’re in a hurry and a pot of fresh soup is all that you can manage for dinner.

VIDEOS: Highlights of cooking school demonstrations for 2015. If you didn’t have a chance to attend our birthday party celebration on video, here’s your opportunity now.

Here’s what we crammed into the shopping bag during our last visit to the farmers’ market. Check in with this video now:

Women’s suffrage centennial celebrations: Video & news notes

“The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is featured short story for women on Vimeo.

Since the 1970s with the emergence of feminist scholarship and the re-discovery of the works of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, we have a remarkable opportunity to bring Gilman and her work to life again. Because of Gilman’s strong New York State connections, this is a great opening for scholars and women’s history advocates to make a contribution to the stories and lives of New York State women. Montana produced a remarkable series of stories about the state’s women for its 2014 suffrage centennial. It’s something to aspire to, that New York State may or may not have the capacity to contribute. It’s important, especially in light of how many New York women were in the forefront of the women’s suffrage movement.

Efforts are underway to feature New York State suffrage activist, Inez Milholland, during her 2016 centennial year. Milholland is America’s suffrage martyr. Become a partner in the year-long observance under the umbrella of the National Women’s History Project co-chaired by Marguerite Kearns and Robert P.J. Cooney Jr. Follow on Twitter.

 WomensActivism.NYC is the hub for a five-year celebration of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial in New York City. The first big event, “Declaration of Sentiments: The Remix, A Celebration of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial and the 200th Birthday of Elizabeth Cady Stanton” is planned for November 12, 2015. The Cooper Union will co-host an evening of music, performance, dance, comedy and poetry.

Celebrate women’s 4th of July on August 8th at Suffrage Wagon Cafe!

Watch the Video

Suffrage Wagon Cafe is the go-to place! on Vimeo.

Suffrage Wagon Cafe opens its doors on August 8th for a special celebration of August 26th, Women’s Equality Day. August 26th is the 95th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. What does this mean? That American women have been citizens for 95 years, and 1920 is the year voting rights were finally won after a 72-year struggle. This voting rights observance isn’t an occasion to pass without some sort of recognition. It’s a perfect occasion for a party, whether it’s for friends and family, or your organization. With 2016 a big election year, community groups are staging events. There’s evidence of this around the nation. Still vague about August 26th? Need a refresher? Consult Wikipedia and other resources. And have fun!
