  7. Women Want the Vote!

    Women Want the Vote!

    $6.95
    It was more than 70 years in the making. From 1848 until 1920, some women willingly faced all kinds of opposition for a cause in which they believed - the right to vote. They came from different backgrounds and their methods varied, but most of these women shared at least one thing in common: they refused to give up. They gave speeches, organized events, filled petitions, and spent time in jail. The March issue is devoted to a look at some of the women (and a few men!) who stand out and stood up for a cause that often made them the focus of angry personal attacks, ridicule, and scorn. From Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, they dedicated their lives to making sure that all women had a voice. Learn More
  8. The Great War: Women Join the Fight

    The Great War: Women Join the Fight

    $6.95
    What do First Lady Edith Wilson, novelist Edith Wharton, performer Elsie Janis, and sculptor Anna Coleman Ladd have in common? They all were women who used their positions and skills to show support to the soldiers and the victims of World War I. And they were not the only ones who invested their time, money, or talents to the effort. Women during the early 1900s were expected to devote their lives to being wives and mothers. But when World War I started in Europe in 1914, the urge to help was strong. Women volunteered as nurses, worked as switchboard operators, enlisted in the Navy. They served their country in any way they could and their sacrifices and successes changed how women were perceived after the war. Join us in March to meet some of these amazing women who dared to step outside of their traditional roles.cob0603t Learn More
  9. ELIZABETH BLACKWELL: FIRST WOMAN DOCTOR

    ELIZABETH BLACKWELL: FIRST WOMAN DOCTOR

    $6.95
    When Elizabeth Blackwell graduated from medical school in 1849, she was the first woman doctor ever to obtain a medical degree in the United States. This issue is devoted to her life - from her childhood in England, to her years in medical school, to her life after school and her attempts to establish a hospital for women run by women. We've also include articles that provide a historic look at the role of women in the medical field, a review of the different contributions a number of 19th-century women made to the medical profession, and a look at Blackwell's innovative work in educating about and improving sanitary conditions. /cob0303t/cob0303t_2 Learn More
  10. IDA B. WELLS-BARNETT

    IDA B. WELLS-BARNETT

    $6.95
    Ida B. Wells-Barnett was an African American and a woman at a time in American history when both groups were struggling for equal rights and fair treatment. But having two strikes against her did not stop Wells-Barnett. She became a journalist and spent most of her life using her writings to protest the unfair treatment of blacks. She was particularly outraged by the lynchings of innocent people. In this issue, we will follow the life of this extraordinary African American, from her beginnings as the daughter of slaves, to threats made on her life for her outspoken editorials, to her rise to prominence in Chicago society. /cob0102t Learn More
