Program Title: WINGS#46-19 Matilda Joslyn Gage, Renegade Suffragist
Description: Historian Sally Roesch Wagner discusses her favourite US suffragist, Matilda Joslyn Gage. Gage modeled her feminism on the practices of her neighbors, the Haudenosaunee indigenous women; she broke with Susan B. Anthony over alliance with the Women's Christian Temperance Union, wrote extensively against patriarchal religion, and inspired her son in law L. Frank Baum to create the woman-led, egalitarian society of Oz.
Host(s): Elayne Clift
