Johanna Neuman - Gilded Suffragists: The New York Socialites Who Fought for Women's Right to Vote — in conversation with Judy Woodruff

Upcoming Event
Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 1:00 pm

The heroes of Neuman’s ground-breaking history of women activists of the Progressive Era are the wealthy New York socialites of the early twentieth century, the women of the Astor, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and Whitney families. Though not always taken seriously outside the worlds of fashion and style, these women were dedicated and effective activists who knew how to use their prestige and power to make women’s rights a fashionable cause. As she follows their advocacy on behalf of girls’ education and women’s right to vote, Neuman, a former journalist and now a scholar in residence at American University, gives a fresh picture of the Gilded Age, bringing to life an unjustly dismissed, vibrant group of early feminists.

Neuman will be in conversation with Judy Woodruff, anchor of PBS NewsHour.
