NewsNotesSept2013I’ve been on retreat at Pendle Hill this week  (a Quaker retreat center) and then in the coming week I’m off on a tour of the cradle of the women’s rights movement in the United States with Olivia Twine.  Of course, you can come along. Sign up at RockTheCradle.com, and that’s just the beginning. There’s even Twitter to follow along.

Anthony Day? #1. #2.  Horror stories from the suffrage movement have come to pass. #1. #2. The Votes for Women quilt project continues on. Even if you don’t quilt, the progression and coverage of the movement is spectacular. #1. #2.  The effort to restore voting rights in the aftermath of the US Supreme Court decision. #1. #2. Women voting in Kuwait. #1. #2.
