The Newseum marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, which guaranteed all American women the right to vote, with a conversation featuring today’s top political journalists.
The program will also celebrate women journalists of the era who leveraged their work to support women gaining the right to vote, including Miriam Michelson, a revolutionary journalist and best-selling feminist novelist who played a pivotal role in the effort. The new book, “The Superwoman and Other Writings by Miriam Michelson,” edited with an introduction by Lori Harrison-Kahan and foreword by Joan Michelson, Miriam’s great-great niece, is the first collection of newspaper articles and fiction written by Miriam Michelson.
