Award Winning Author speaks to FBWEV
Published on 3/4/2014
On March 5th, FBWEV members and volunteers attended an author’s talk on The Scarlet Sisters, Sex, Suffrage, and Scandal in the Gilded Age, a new book by Myra MacPherson. Ms. MacPherson, a best-selling author, outlined the avant-garde crusades of Victoria Woodhull and Tennessee “Tennie” Calfin. She discussed the sisters’ crusade for women’s fiscal, political and sexual independence, and made the attendees realize that their causes are still relevant/unresolved social issues today.
