Marguerite Kearns—a writer and storyteller—as well as granddaughter of Edna and Wilmer Kearns.
She grew up listening to her grandfather Wilmer Kearns’ stories about her late suffrage activist grandmother Edna Kearns—back when women couldn’t vote and equality seemed like an impossible dream. Generations of Americans struggled for basic voting rights and laid a base for the women’s rights activism today.
SUNY Press (Albany, NY) will publish Marguerite’s book, An Unfinished Revolution: Edna Buckman Kearns and the Struggle for Women’s Rights, in June 2021.
