About the News Channel
December 2014 is Suffrage Wagon’s fifth birthday. And December 25th is the birthday of Edna Buckman Kearns who inspired this web platform of news and stories about the suffrage movement.
Suffrage Wagon News Channel uses multi-media to bring the women’s suffrage movement to life through personal stories, news, features, and digital media. The combined effort of tens of thousands of activists like suffragist Edna Kearns spans several generations and it is a source of inspiration and leadership today. Suffrage Wagon News Channel has been publishing since 2009.
