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 the work of Miriam Michelson, a revolutionary journalist and best-selling feminist novelist who leveraged her fame and notoriety to keep the suffrage movement on the front page of the news at the turn of the 20th century.
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.
The panel features:
Lori Harrison-Kahan, a professor in the English Department at Boston College and editor of "The Superwoman and Other Writings by Miriam Michelson;"
Anna Palmer, Playbook co-author and Women Rule Editorial Director, POLITICO;
Shawna Thomas, Washington D.C. bureau chief, VICE News;
Joan Michelson, journalist and great-great niece of Miriam Michelson, will moderate the conversation. Michelson is the host of the podcast "Green Connections Radio" and writes for Forbes.
Free and open to the public. Registration is required.
A book signing will follow the program.
