Why Do We Know More About Kim Kardashian Than Abigail Adams

Amy Simon is a Mom On A Mission.
When her ten-year-old daughter came home from school one March
stating she was planning on doing her women's history project on Cher, this Writer/Performer/Cultural Herstorian knew something needed to be done.
Drawing on diaries, letters, publications, and biographies and combining theater, history, multimedia, audience interaction, and good old-fashioned story telling, She's History! brings to life the true tales of fabulous females, then and now. Going back and forth from the past to the present, Amy Simon poignantly finds the funny as she chronicles the struggles and accomplishments of our unheralded, unknown and forgotten heroines whose courage and strength inspire her as she raises her two daughters. Watch Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony multi-task just like today's mom - running the house, fixing dinner and corralling the kids, all while working on the Fourteenth Amendment. Hear about our first feminist writer Mary Wollstonecraft, and listen, as Frances Wright becomes the first woman to speak in public to "promiscuous" audiences. Learn how Alice Paul stole President Wilson's parade, and see how she suffered for the cause. Watch Nancy Pelosi become the First Female Speaker of The House, witness Sojourner Truth's powerful Ain't I A Woman speech and experience Shirley Chisholm's humanity. See what inspired Bella Abzug, Lucretia Mott, Eleanor Roosevelt and Golda Meir. Hear about Lilly Ledbetter and Equal Pay, Victoria Woodhull (the first woman to run for president) and Hillary Clinton, bloomers, suffrage, maternal profiling, the road to Seneca Falls, abolition and more! It's all there in a fast-paced GALA-PALOOZA honoring Female America.


Check out her website at www.sheshistory.com
From the mom who brought you
Cheerios In My Underwear
which held the record as the longest running solo show in Los Angeles, until it was broken by SHE'S HISTORY!.

Amy Simon is a mother, actress, playwright, improviser, published writer, producer, and self-proclaimed Cultural Herstorian, who has been acting in and producing theater for most of her adult life. She writes, blogs, performs and entertains on the radio, online, and onstage furthering her mission to turn the world on to all the fabulous females we don't know enough about. She is the mother of two daughters who can tell you all about the first woman to run for President.

Night in Suffrage White

Gather your friends and join the staff of the Alice Paul Institute for a special pop-up dinner to celebrate the date that women were granted the right to vote! The observance of Women’s Equality Day not only commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment, but it also calls attention to women’s continuing efforts toward full equality. API is proud to host this elegant evening to raise funds for its leadership programs for teen girls and for our continued advocacy for the passage of the Equal Rights Act.

White is the color of the event! In honor of the many suffragists who wore white in their fight to gain the right to vote, every guest is highly-encouraged to wear all white and decorate their table in white linens. In true pop-up fashion, this event operates on a “pack it in/pack it out” philosophy. Every group must bring all their supplies (tables, chairs, food, flatware, linens, etc.) and take everything home with them, including trash.

Spots can be secured for groups of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, or 14! The first 50 guests registered are guaranteed a spot on Paulsdale’s beautiful wrap-around porch!

Cocktails & Conversations: How to Flip Unconscious Bias, October 23 from 6:00-8:00pm at Roger Williams University in Bristol, RI

This panel will discuss how our social constructs and gender roles are NOT destinies that must be fulfilled. Women and men are responsible for developing positive systems of behavior in such a way that allows men to eradicate toxic behavior and women to free themselves from the confines of gender socialization. Part of this discussion will look at the unconscious bias we develop at a young age, that solidifies toxic behaviors and gender socialization.


Panelists: Siri Chilazi of Harvard University, Shan Mukhtar PhD of Providence College and Stephanie Huckel from IGT and Sandra Victorino from Providence Center.

Moderated by: Susan Bosco and Ame Lambert from RWU


Please take one or more of these surveys before attending the event. The results won't be shared, but you'll have some idea about your own biases that may not have been apparent before. https://implicit.harvard.edu/implicit/takeatest.html

Registration
Four-Day Educator Institute

June 10-13, 2019- LBJ Presidential Library

$50 per person | Stipend + housing provided

Breakfast + lunch daily | CPE credit opportunity

Women have taken active roles in movements throughout history but are often left out of the traditional narrative. During this four-day educator institute, we will explore women's activism and involvement in various movements throughout modern United States history. And, the timing is fitting. The 99th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment, which granted women the right to vote, is this August.

What to Expect

Educators will hear lectures and have conversations with leading experts in the field. Topics to be covered include litigation around social movements with Vanderbilt University Professor Dr. Holly J. McCammon, and feminist social movements, the 1950s to present, with a focus on the response to white feminism by women of color with University of Texas at Austin Professor Dr. Nicole Guidotti-Hernández.

It is our hope that educators will be able to share a more inclusive story of women's roles in movements in their classrooms.

More speakers and institute details to be released soon.

How to Attend

The workshop has a maximum capacity of 40. Please fill out your online application by Friday, March 15. Application requirements include a statement, resume, and a letter of support from your supervisor. All participants will be notified of acceptance by April 1, 2019. Once accepted, there will be a $50 fee to reserve your spot.

Each attendee will receive a $250 stipend. If housing is needed, it can be provided at no charge on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin.

“Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins” Screening and Discussion

In partnership with The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History, the Friends of the LBJ Library will enjoy a screening of RAISE HELL: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins, a new documentary on the life of the legendary Texas political columnist. Joining us for a discussion after the screening will be Dr. Don Carleton, executive director of The Dolph Briscoe Center for American History and a historical advisor for the film; Janice Engel, the film’s director and co-producer; and Dan Rather, journalist featured in the film.


To RSVP


We are not currently accepting reservations. Friends members at the Individual and above level will receive an email invitation about four weeks in advance and may make a reservation at that time.


About the film


With razor-sharp wit, outspoken journalist and firecracker Molly Ivins took on the good-ole-boy corruption in the political establishment. This six-foot, red-haired Texan found joy in reporting as one of the lone liberals in her deep-red state. She feared that the partisan plague would be the death of American democracy. Ivins became the first woman to co-edit the Texas Observer, and among her claims to fame were her searing, comical books on George W. Bush’s temperament and political record—having grown up in the same town with him, she became an accidental expert. Her blistering way with words was feared by the political elite, but her refreshing critique and big heart garnered a die-hard following from around the country.


Though Ivins died from cancer in 2007, filmmaker Janice Engel crafts a highly entertaining watch that radiantly brings Ivins’s repartee and political wisdom back to life. Her messaging and brand of commentary strikes a particular chord in today’s hostile political climate. This film asks us to shake up the system like Molly Ivins would.


All events listed in the calendar are free unless noted.

First: Sandra Day O’Connor, An American Life

When she graduated near the top of her law school class in 1952, no firm would even interview her. But Sandra Day O’Connor’s story is that of a woman who repeatedly shattered glass ceilings—doing so with a blend of grace, wisdom, humor, understatement, and cowgirl toughness. Bestselling author and journalist Evan Thomas has written the authoritative biography of America’s first female Supreme Court justice, based on exclusive interviews and first-time access to Justice O’Connor’s archives. Presidential historian Michael Beschloss will moderate the discussion. A book signing follows the program.

Rightfully Hers, a new exhibit to mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment, will open this year. Rightfully Hers is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M.

Feminism for the Americas: The Making of an International Human Rights Movement
William G. McGowan Theater
Washington, DC
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.


In her book Feminism for the Americas, professor Katherine M. Marino chronicles the dawn of the global movement for feminism and women’s rights in the first decades of the 20th century. She introduces us to a cast of remarkable Pan-American women who drove a transnational movement that advocated women’s suffrage, equal pay, maternity rights, and broader self-determination. These efforts led to the enshrinement of women’s rights in the United Nations Charter and the framework for international human rights. A book signing follows the program.

Rightfully Hers, a new exhibit to mark the centennial of the 19th Amendment, will open later this year at the National Archives.

Rightfully Hers is made possible in part by the National Archives Foundation through the generous support of Unilever, Pivotal Ventures, Carl M.

19th Amendment and Its Historical Impact Lecture

19th Amendment and Its Historical Impact Lecture
National Archives at Kansas City
Kansas City, MO
Monday, March 25, 2019 - 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.


On Monday, March 25 at 3:00 p.m., the National Archives in partnership with Park University, will host Dr. Kim Warren who will discuss the 19th Amendment and its Historical Impact over the last 100 years as a part of Women’s History Month. This program will take place in the McCoy Meetin’ House on the Park University Campus, 8700 NW River Park Drive, Parkville, MO. Reservations are requested by calling 816-584-6209 for this free program.

On June 4, 1919, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was passed by Congress, then ratified on Aug. 18, 1920. The amendment, which prohibits states and the federal government from denying the right to vote on the basis of sex, will be the focus of Warren’s lecture. Warren, an associate professor in the Department of History at the University of Kansas, is a scholar of gender and race in African-American and Native American studies, history of education and U.S. history. She authored a book on African-American and Native American citizenship and served as an editor of a book on the transformation of the University of Kansas between 1965 and 2015. Her other publications include examinations of Native American masculinity and athletics, separate gender spheres ideology and African-American tourism in West Africa. Warren’s second monograph, an investigation of Mary McLeod Bethune’s political strategies to advance the movements of women and African-Americans in the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration, was supported by a postdoctoral fellowship from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.

In 1855, after her family won its freedom, seven-year-old Mary Mildred Williams joined Senator Charles Sumner in a series of sold-out lectures as evidence that slavery knew no bounds. After being photographed, Mary unexpectedly became the face of American slavery: America’s first poster child. Why? As author Jessie Morgan-Owens relates in her book, Girl in Black and White, this former slave girl looked “white.” A book signing follows the program.
