As we commemorate the centennial of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote, here is a glimpse into an untold part of the story: a woman journalist who supported the cause by keeping the movement in the headlines: Miriam Michelson, She also happens to be Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson’s great-great aunt.
Listen to professor Lori Harrison-Kahan share stories about how Miriam used her platforms and broke the rules as a woman in this then-non-traditional field, including those from her new book, “The Superwoman and Other Writings of Miriam Michelson.
• How women journalists in the 1890s-1900’s addressed the #MeToo movement of their day.
• How Miriam used her platform for women’s rights and other social causes.
• Lessons for women today breaking into non-traditional careers. (You can read about this in my Forbes blog too.)
• Great stories from Miriam’s best-selling fiction, which made her a “celebrity” of her day, including “The Superwoman,” which is considered some of the source material for “Wonder Woman” comic.
